For the music industry, 1971 was 
a year of change. The burden of oper- 
ating under a still-restricted economy 
was only partly the result of de- 
velopments that had a direct bearing 
on the function of the business, ill 
economy or no. 

Certainly an issue of deep conse- 
quence was the matter of exposure 
of acts, especially the problem of de- 
veloping new stars. Radio playlists 
continued to play it tight, while some 
major live showcases, most promi- 
nently Bill Graham’s Fillmore East and 
West, called it quits. In the area of 
wholesaling, the racks maintained a 
traditional policy of cherry-picking. 
What to do? The industry responded 
in several ways. Many labels took on 
a new function as booking agents by 
sponsoring live performances of new 
acts in various major markets. One 
company, RCA, established a sales of- 
fice in Los Angeles with the specific 
function of getting new acts off the 
ground. By the end of the year, a num- 
ber of newcomers did make their 
mark, particularly in the singles field, 
but it was still too early to determine 
if they had longevity or, at least, some 
LP staying power. Certainly, the long 
sought-after new “superstar” attrac- 
tion like the Beatles did not emerge, 
but an act like Carole King under- 
scored the great new vitality of the 
solo performer. 

Change also came in the form of 
a remarkable shift of executives at 


the very top of label management. 
Still, it was a question of waiting well 
into 1972 before one could deter- 
mine the consequences — for better or 
worse — of this tide of the game of 
executive musical chairs. 

These executive suite changes, how- 
ever, did not put any crimp in the in- 
dustry trend toward national distribu- 
tion deals, whereby large label enti- 
ties take over the manufacture and 
distribution of labels formed by artists, 
producers and others. 

With the emergence of a Kinney 
branch system for its Warner Bros., 
Elektra and Atlantic label operations, 
the industry pondered the present and 
future role of the independent distrib- 
utor in the crucial area of his ability 
to assist in the development of hit 
product. Was he financially too weak 
to do the job or was he too interested 
in other sales (e.g. retailing?), the 
manufacturer questioned. 

If there was any development that 
heartened the business during the 
year, a “smile” button goes to the 
passage into law of a recording copy- 
right amendment to the current Copy- 
right Act. Signed by President Nixon 
on Oct. 15, it is to take effect on Feb. 
15 for all product manufactured after 
that date. This plus continued all-in- 
dustry cooperation in the enforcement 
of existing legal courses against a 
$150 million a year evil were viewed 
as more than “a light at the end of 
the tunnel,” but, perhaps, a war won.

SESAC’s 40th 
A Banner Year 


NEW YORK — 1971, in addition to 
marking SESAC’s 40th anniversary, 
proved to be a “highly successful 
one” for the company, both from a 
national and an international stand- 
point, according to A. H. Prager, exec 
vp & managing director. During this 
period, scores of talented new writ- 
ers, artists and publishers signed with 
the licensing firm and helped produce 
a steady flow of SESAC copyrights 
on music charts both here and abroad. 
SESAC has more than 300 publisher 
affiliates. 

One of the highlights of the an- 
niversary year for SESAC was its 
announcement last July of the ap- 
pointment of W. Robert Thompson as 
exec director of its extensive Nash- 
ville operation. Thompson, who had 
previously been associated with 
SESAC as its director of public rela- 
tions, left in 1966 to form his own 
record company. Since his arrival on 
the Nashville scene this past summer, 
SESAC has garnered numerous new 
writers and publishers and has accel- 
erated its tremendous impact on this 
important segment of American mu- 
sic. 

During 1971, too, as further evi- 
dence of SESAC’s recognized role of 
leadership in the music world, several 
if its exec were named to key posts in 
music organizations. W. F. Myers, its 
director of intemationa relations who 
had served as president of the Gospel 
Music Association for three succes- 
sive terms, was elected to serve on 
that organization’s board of direc- 
tors. In addition, its director of 
mechanical licensing, Eddie Morgan, 
was named secretary of the G.M.A. 
and Charles Scully, SESAC’s director 
of information services, was elected a 
vice president of the Country Music 
Association. 

On the international music scene, 
SESAC continued its role as one of 
the world’s foremost music licensing 
organizations. The company has al-

FRONT COVER: 



Bell Records’ David Cassidy has 
emerged from the myriad of new 
faces on television and on record as a 
phenomenal superstar. His first solo 
recording, “Cherish,” has already 
gone over the million mark as has 
every recording he has made, as part 
of The Partridge Family. The Par- 
tridge Family’s latest single, “It’s 
One of Those Nights,” is already a 
hit. Currently, Cassidy is finishing 
his first solo LP, which will be re- 
leased in Jan. and is preparing to 
record a new Partridge Family al- 
bum which will be issued the follow- 
ing month. In February, he will 
launch a concert tour of the major

‘Day Of Song Again’ Sparks 
Operations At April-Blackwood 


NEW YORK — “The day of the song 
is here again.” Working on this prem- 
ise, Joel Diamond, who assumed the 
post of general professional manager 
of April-Blackwood Music last April, 
is gearing the operation toward ex- 
ploitation of the individual song, 
while still recognizing the influence of 
the artist/writer. 

Suggesting that the music publish- 
ing field is coming into a new era of 
the songwriter, Diamond says, “The 
song is starting once again to be the 
important thing, which means that 
the producer or singer/songwriter will 
not turn down what they consider to 
be a hit song. This has put the pub- 
lisher in a good position.” 

To Diamond himself and his staff, 
this point of view means “hanging 


out and being where the producers 
and artists are, a situation similar to 
the publishing business of 20 years 
ago.” Also, it’s an opportunity, Dia- 
mond adds, to dig into the catalog, a 
process that recently gave an old 
April-Blackwood copyright, “Baby, 
I’m Yours,” a big run on the country 
charts via a recording by Jodi Miller. 
Another oldie, “Marianne,” the calyp- 
so hit of the 50’s, is back again 
through a Casper recording by the 
Sunflower. 

Exec Talent Needed 

Diamond’s optimism about the new 
turn of events in music publishing, 
however, is clouded by his contention

MCA Launches Radio Drive 
On Cosby Anti-Drug Album 


UNIVERSAL CITY — MCA has just 
cut radio spots promoting its recent 
UNI release, “Bill Cosby Talks to 
Kids About Drugs,” and by the first 
week in Jan. will have mailed them 
out to a total of 7000 stations in kit 
form. Endorsed by the National 
Coordinating Council on Drug Educa- 
tion in Washington, D.C., the album 
is being offered to bona fide public 
service organizations for $1.75, allow- 
ing them to keep the difference (be- 
tween that suppliers’ price and a sug- 
gested list of $4.94) for anti-dnig 
programs at the local level. 

Included in the promo kit will be 
one 45 record containing six radio 
spots, another 45 offered as a sampler 
(containing two tracks from the LP, 
both songs by Cosby — “Captain Junk- 
ie” b/w “People Make Mistakes”), a 
memo outlining the ways and means 
to promote the album, a self-address 
order card, offering a free LP on any 
bulk order, and a covering letter from 
the National Council. These kits will 
be mailed to all NAB stations 
throughout the country. 

“Our purpose,” said the album’s 
producer Gil Rodin, “is to get the 
album into the home. We’re aiming to 


get our message to the 4- to 12-year- 
olds, and to their parents — the mes-

David Samoff 

NEW YORK — David Samoff, who en- 
visioned the “radio music box” in 
1915 and television as a commercial 
possibility in 1923, died on Dec. 12 at 
the age of 80. 

Samoff’s pioneering efforts in radio 
and TV were channeled through the 
Radio Corporation of America (now 
RCA Corp.), the company with which 
he was associated for more than 50 
years. He retired as chairman of the 
board and board member on Dec. 31, 
1969, although he held the title of 
honorary board chairman until his 

Bell’s Best Xmas 
Sales Assisted By 
Partridge Bonanza 

NEW YORK — Bell Records is going 
through its best Christmas retail sales 
in history. 

Sparking the sales spree, reports 
Gordon Bossin, vp of album sales, 
are Partridge Family LP’s, all four 
of which, including the new “Christ- 
mas Card” set, have sold over one 
million units. Total sales amount to 
5 V 2 million, Bossin noted. 

With Partridge display material in 
retail outlets around the country, 
Bossin said that many of the larger 
retailers have declared Dec. as “Part- 
ridge Family Month.” 


Dies At 80 

death. 

The son of Russian immigrants, 
Samoff gained worldwide fame as the 
telegraph operator who received mes- 
sages from ships trying to rescue 
passengers on the ill-fated Titanic on 
April 14, 1912. Samoff left the Mar- 
coni Co. in 1919 to join RCA as com- 
mercial manager. Under his leader- 
ship, RCA has emerged as a vast con- 
glomerate and home entertainment 
manufacturer, including, of course, 
RCA Records, with annual sales of $3 
billion. 

RCA’s National Broadcasting Corp. 
— with a concept of a network of 
radio stations — was established in 
1926. A decade leader, NBC had orga- 
nized the NBC Symphony Orchestra, 
led from 1937 to 1954 by Arturo Tos- 
canini. Numerous performances by 
Toscanini and the NBC were mar- 
keted by RCA Victor Records. More 
recently, the performances have been 
made available on RCA’s economy- 
priced Victrola label. RCA had estab- 
lished the Victor Talking Machine Co. 
in 1929 and acquired the “His Mas- 
ter’s Voice” and “Victrola” trade- 
marks the same year. 

Surviving Samoff are his widow, 
Lizette, three sons, Robert Samoff, 
chairman of RCA, Thomas, NBC staff 
exec vp on the west coast, and Ed- 
ward; two brothers and a sister and 
nine grandchildren. A funeral sendee 
was held last Wed. (15) at Temple 
Emanu-El in Manhattan. 


ASCAP OK’s Perf. 
Credit In BMI 
Collaborations 

NEW YORK — The board of direc- 
tors of ASCAP, at a meeting last 
Tuesday (14), voted to allow its 
members to receive performance cred- 
it when collaborating on new com- 
positions with writers now affiliated 
j with BMI. 

The move was made to augment 
ASCAP’s recruiting program, which 
in recent months has brought into its 
ranks such writers as Ashford and 
Simpson, Black Sabbath, Chicago and 
Stevie Wonder. 

Phil Kahl To 
Big Seven As 
VP & GPM 

NEW YORK— Phil Kahl has become 
re-associated with Moras Levy as vp 
and general manager of Big Seven 
Music Corp. 

Kahl, whose career goes back to the 
early 50’s when he served as profes- 
sional manager of such firms as Red 
Evans Music, Joy Music and Disney 
Music, left Disney to become a part- 
ner with Levy in Planetary Music and 
Patricia Music and one of the origi- 
nal stockholders of Roulette Records. 
After, selling his interest in the firms, 
Kahl joined with his brother, Joe 
Kolsky, to form Diamond Records 
and, with Wes Farrell, two publish- 
ing units. Diamond was sold to Edwin 
H. Morris Music in 1968, with Kahl 
and Kolsky becoming associated with 
the new operation. Kolsky recently 
returned to Roulette Records as a vp. 

Tape Duplicators 
Win Latest Round 

SALT LAKE CITY— The most recent 
engagement in the continuing legal 
battle between “pirate” tape dupli- 
cators and record labels marked a 
victory for the duplicator in Federal 
court last week (15). Chief Judge 
Willis Ritter issued an order declar- 
ing a law suit brought by tape re- 
tailers and wholesalers against RCA, 
ABC and Ampex to be a class action 
encompassing all retailers and dis- 
tributors throughout the United 
States. 

The court ordered notice to be given 
that the class action is being main- 
tained against the defendants, “de- 
claring the right of the class to legally 
acquire and sell duplicated musical 
magnetic tapes from manufacturing 
duplicators and enjoining the named 
defendants, their agents, and others 
in active concert therewith, from in- 
terfering with the normal operation 
and conduct of the business of the 
class, including but not limited to the 
threatening, instituting or prosecut- 
ing of legal actions in state courts 
under unfair competition or misap- 
propriation of property theories re- 
lating to the manufacturing, distrib- 
uting or selling of duplicated musical 
magnetic tapes on which tapes the 
manufacturers or distributors have 
complied with applicable Copyright 
Laws of the United States and said 
tapes are labeled in a manner dis- 
tinguished from the original recorder 
or manufacturer.” 

Motions by the defendants to dis- 
miss the complaints on grounds of 
lack of jurisdiction over the subject 
matter and failure to state a claim 
upon which relief might be granted 
were “held in abeyance” until further 
order of the court. 

Cow Palace To Rock 

SAN FRANCISCO— Joy of Cooking 
and Cold Blood have been set to head- 
line a special New Year’s Eve rock 
marathon booked into the Cow Palace

a concert site, but manager Lex Con- 
nelly has opened the vast hall for this 
date as a holiday attraction. Both of 
the headlining rock groups are based 
in the Bay Area.

Pickwick Qtr 
Showing Up; 

NY Stock Listing 

NEW YORK — Cy Leslie, chairman 
of the Board of Pickwick Internation- 
al, Inc., announced that earnings and 
sales have achieved new records for 
the 74th consecutive comparative 
quarter. This encompasses every peri- 
od since the company’s existence. 

During the second quarter of the 
1971/1972 fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 
sales rose 17.9% to $32,806,955 from 
$27,821,011 and net income increased 
20.5% to $1,707,665 from $1,417,422 in 
fiscal 1971. Earnings per share for the 
quarter rose 14 to 41 cents from 36 
cents per share in the previous fiscal 
quarter ended October 31. 

For the entire six month period, 
sales increased 19.8% or $56,181,282 as 
compared with $46,911,520. Net in- 
come showed a growth of 21.4% or 
$2,538,697 as against $2,091,697. 
Earnings per share for the period 
rose 17 % to 62 cents from 53 cents. 

Leslie also said, that the Board of 
Governors of the New York Stock 
Exchange has approved Pickwick In- 
ternational, Inc. for a listing on the 
New York Stock Exchange. It is ex- 
pected that the effective date of list- 
ing will be Dec. 29. 

Leslie further stated, “The Targ & 
Dinner, Inc. division was sold in Nov. 
for cash and notes to the Harmon 
Go., a leading American manufacturer 
of guitars. The Targ & Dinner divi- 
sion, which distributes musical instru- 
ments and accessories, did not con- 
tribute to profits during the past six 
months’ period.” 

“In summary, Leslie stated, despite 
the uncertainties in our economic en- 
vironment, we have maintained our 
growth pattern and continue to seek 
further internal expansion as well as 
seeking acquisition opportunities in 
related areas in which our expertise 
can be utilized, or in which exception- 
al management is available.” 

Teletronics

Profit Up 70% 

NEW YORK — George K. Gould, 
president of Teletronics International, 
Inc., has announced that the earn- 
ings of the Company for the first 
quarter ended Sept. 30, were 70%

ings were .08 compared to .05 Gould 
said: “I’m pleased that we’ve man- 
aged this increase in sales and earn- 
ings against the backdrop of a gen- 
erally depressed television advertis- 
ing industry. I anticipate Teletronics’ 
forward movement will increase in 
the period immediately ahead.” 

Teletronics International, Inc. is a 
leading video tape laboratory, supply- 
ing a complete range of services in- 
cluding electronic photography, CMX

'71 A Record 
For NMC Corp. 

OCEANSIDE — NMC Corp. has re- 
ported record operating gains for the 
fiscal year ended July 31, 1971. 

The national record and tape rack 
jobbing firm announced that sales for 
the year rose 55% to $14,519,972 from 
$9,283,047 in fiscal 1970. Net income 
before extraordinary credits totaled 
$167,673 or $.26 per share on a prima- 
ry basis and $.34 per share fully di- 
luted compared with a net operating 
loss of $1,814,512 or a loss of $2.85 
per share in the previous fiscal year. 
Extraordinary credits of $347,369 
equal to $.54 per share on a primary 
basis and $.36 per share fully diluted 
brought total net income for the year 
to $515,042 or $.80 per share primary 
and $.70 fully diluted. 

President Jesse Selter attributed 
the sharp turnaround in NMC’s oper- 
ations to “the successful merchandis- 
ing of our record rack jobbing sales 
and promotional expertise to high 
volume retail outlets that depend on 
their record departments as traffic 
builders.” Selter also noted that rein- 
statement of traditionally high record 
and tape profit margins after an in- 
ventory glut in 1969-1970 and NMC’s 
addition of a number of key retail 
outlets particularly on the West Coast 
also played an important role in the 
company’s progress last year. 

NMC currently services some 350 
outlets from coast to coast with rec- 
ords and tapes including such well 
known chains as the White Front and 
Wallich’s Music City stores in Cali- 
fornia, Hartfield-Zody’s, Sages and 
the Akron Stores. The company 
maintains warehouses in Oceanside, 
N.Y., Gardena and Burlingame, Cali- 
fornia and Detroit. 

NMC recently announced that an 
affiliate, Lease 'and License Ltd., had 
acquired the retail record and tape 
departments of 72 Interstate Stores 
under a 10-year lease. A sublicensing 
agreement with LLL is expected to 
net NMC $500,000 per year, based on 
the departments’ current annual sales 
of $15 million. The agreement with 
LLL includes a 10-year contract for 
NMC to handle all record and tape 
rack jobbing for the 72 leased depart- 
ments. 

Selter said that NMC is currently 
billing at an annualized rate of $24 
million and noted that results for the 
first two months of fisal 1972 had 
already exceeded the same period of 
last year. 

Net To Go Down 
At AEG-Telef unken 

FRANKFURT — Lower radio, TV and 
phonograph sales contributed to low- 
er net earnings of AEG-Telef unken in 
1971. Heinz Groebe, chairman, said 
the net would be considerably lower 
than the $27.6 million last year. Sales 
will rise to about $2.73 billion from 
$2.5 billion in 1970. Groebe also cited 
increases in labor costs for the 
downturn. Groebe also reported that 
radio, TV and phonograph plant at 
Wolfenbuettel will close in the 
spring. It was acquired from General 
Electric two years ago.

NEW YORK — Rosalie W. Miller, exec 
director of the American Mechanical 
Rights Association (AMRA), reports 
the direct distribution of foreign 
mechanical royalties to the publisher 
and writer members of AMRA. 

As a result of a reciprocal agree- 
ment with GEMA, the West German 
performing and mechanical rights so- 
ciety, foreign mechanical income due 
the AMRA members is now collected 
at the source by each local society in 
countries throughout the world, re- 
mitted to GEMA where statements are 
prepared for the individual publisher 
and writer and forwarded to AMRA 
for distribution to its members. 

Identification of works controlled 
by AMRA members (even those 
where lyrics have been translated into 
a foreign language) is achieved 
through the close cooperation of 
affiliated societies around the world. 

Mrs. Miller explained that this ser- 
vice, which is available to each 
AMRA affiliated publisher and writer 
at no additional collection fee, will 
now enable many members to realize 
as much as 35% higher income. In

Charts Home 
To Chicago 

NEW YORK — It’s been 137 weeks 
since Columbia’s Chicago first landed 
on the charts with “Chicago Transit 
Authority”, and they still reside there. 
Four Chicago sets have been on the 
charts for 280 weeks. 

“Chicago Transit Authority” started 
it all. A double record set by a new

deluxe packaging with the four rec- 
ords individually jacketed and then 
packaged in a slip case; its contents 
that include photos, memorabilia; a 
program from the concert and voting 
information plus, of course, the music

UA Nat’l Sales Training 
Program Under Bratnober 


CAM/USA’s Rock Progress 
Report: Lighthouse Beams 


HOLLYWOOD — United Artists Rec- 
ords has initiated a national sales 
training program, according to label 
president Michael Stewart, under the 
direction of Charles Bratnober, who 
has been appointed to the position of 
national director of sales training. 

Stewart stated that UDC, the rec- 
ord and tape distribution arm of 
United Artists, is now a major factor 
in national marketing and sales, with 
a very special growth pattern emerg- 
ing in recent months through the ac- 
quisition for national distribution, of 
the Polydor family of labels, includ- 
ing Deutsche Grammophon. The UA 
sales training program has been insti- 
tuted to train and develop a national 
sales force and to insure that key 
management posts are filled from 
within the organization in the future. 

Bratnober, a vet of three years in 
various major sales capacities for the 
UA label, and 12 years of similar 
experience with Capitol, has been se- 
lected to head the newly-formed oper- 
ation. His initial project is the de- 
velopment of a training manual to 
spell out the UA marketing and sales 
philosophies so that a uniformity and 
cohesiveness exist in each UDC 
branch from coast-to-coast, as well as 
in the national office. 

Bratnober will shortly embark on 
an extensive cross-country inspection 
tour of UDC branches. He will be 
implementing basic national sales pol- 


Daybreak Caster 
Of Gershwins’ 

Video Special 

HOLLYWOOD — Daybreak Records 
has secured the original cast rights to 
the Bell System’s Family Theatre 
90-minute TV special, “Jack Lemmon 
in ’S Wonderfu, ’S Marvelous, ’S Ger- 
shwin”, which, will be telecast over 
NBC-TV on Jan. 17, reports label 
president Sonny Burke. 

Featuring the music of the Gersh- 
wins, George and Ira, the show stars 
Lemmon, Fred Astaire, Leslie Ug- 
gams and Peter Nero, with Linda 
Bennett, Larry Kert, Robert Guillame 
and the orchestra of Elliot Lawrence. 

The LP is being rushed into release 
so that it will be available at retail 
outlets nationally during the first 
week of Jan. 

Daybreak, marketed in the U.S. and 
Canada by RCA and by indie licensees 
throughout the rest of the world, will 
make the album available in Canada 
at the same time as the U.S. inasmuch 
as the Bell Family TV special airs a 
week earlier, Jan. 11, in Canada. In- 
ternationally, the cast recording will 
be marketed in England, Japan, Aus- 
tralia, on the Continent, etc., within 
four weeks after U.S. distribution to 
take advantage of foreign TV dates 
now being set. Daybreak executive 
vice president and general manager 
Bobby Weiss anticipates heavy inter- 
est in the LP in the USA and globally 
due to the combination of Gershwin 
song favorites with the cast. 

Special merchandising and publicity 
tie-ins are being coordinated between 
Daybreak Records, RCA, Rogers, 
Cowan and Brenner (in behalf of 
AT&T/Bell), N. W. Ayer, NBC-TV 
and the producers of the Gershwin TV 
special, Joseph Cates and Marty 
Chamin. 

Burke, who coordinated and pro- 
duced the transfer from the TV visual 
recording to the actual vinyl version, 
spent a total of more than 60 studio 
hours in effecting the transfer to the 
recorded release so as to obtain a 
maximum result with a tightly-edited 
melody-packed Gershwin longplay. 

The Gershwin recording on Day- 
break will be one of three new albums 
scheduled by the Hollywood diskery 
as part of its Jan. release.

such as Climax, whose current single 
is “Precious and Few.” Sugar, a vocal 
quartet; Sweetgrass, a country-rock

Holly Sherwood and A1 Wilson and 
singer-songwriter Bonnie White. 

Carousel has released four albums 
and several singles in less than a year 
of operation, and Rocky Road Rec- 
ords plans to release eight albums

Rocky Road Records is owned by 
Marc Gordon, personal manager for 
The 5th Dimensions, Dawn and Tony 
Orlando, Thelma Houston and several 
other artists.

Para Begins 
On End Product 

NEW YORK — Paramount Records is- 
sued this week a new single by the 
End Product. The disk, “Two Halves 
Make A Whole” b/w “Sunday Dream- 
ing,” was produced by Myrna March 
& Bert Keyes’ Make Music indie firm. 
The former side was written by Clyde 
Otis. 


NEW YORK — Only six months after 
CAM/USA, the international publish- 
and production house initiated an 
effort to bring pop and rock writers, 
producers and talent under its wing, 
their efforts to branch out from the 
foreign film soundtrack market have 
brought the organization substantial 
notoriety. The expansion move was 
solidly made a part of company 
policy with the appointment of vet- 
eran producer Jimmy Ienner to the 
of the company’s rights to over 5,000 
film soundtracks has been rivaled by 
its non-film activities. 

Lighthouse Shines 

lenner’s biggest success thus far 
has been in the role of producer for 
Canadian rockers Lighthouse, whose 
catalog is bandied by the firm. Ienner 
is responsible for their “One Fine 
Morning” LP and single as well as 
the group’s newest release “Take It 
Slow,” currently #70 on the Top 100, 
all on Stereo Dimension. Other recent 
production credits include The Okay- 



Ienner, Bennedetto

NEW YORK CITY, NY— In a move 
to expand, the music publishing op- 
eration of Burlington-Felsted Music 
Corp., Mimi Trepel, manager, has an- 
nounced the appointment of Eddie 
Deane as professional manager. 

Deane arrives with track record as 
a writer and publisher representative 
having had past associations with

all media facets. Deane will be op- 
erating from the Burlington-Felsted 
offices at 539 W. 25th St., NYC.

Augustin Switch 
To A&R At UA U.S. 

HOLLYWOOD — Gerhard Augustin 
has joined the A&R department of 
United Artists Records, effective im- 
mediately. He will also be a member 
of UA’s Product Development Group. 

Prior to his new position, Augustin 
served for two years as assistant to 
the Managing Director of UA’s disk 
operation in Germany. Before that he 
was Germany’s first pop disk jockey 
in Bremen in 1964 and hosted the 
Beat Club, one of the world’s longest 
running and most successful rock 
video shows. Augustin has also had 
a great deal of experience in the 
United States. He has worked for 
KQED-TV in San Francisco and was 
the recipient of a grant from Stan- 
ford University in mass communica- 
tion. 

Augustin will be situated at UA 
headquarters in Hollywood. 


sions’ “Travlin’ Life” (Atlantic), a 
debut LP for Raspberries (Capitol), 
Gloria Loring’s “My Guy” and Cel- 
ebration’s “Anthem” single (Stereo 
Dimension). “Our moist important 
concern is not front money for our 
productions,” explained Ienner, “but 
in securing the most promising pro- 
motional and marketing follow- 
through and royalty agreements for 
our product.” 

Ties With Writers 

Ienner is also currently involved 
with songwriter Bryan Wells (“A 
Place Is The Sun,” “Yester Me Yester 
You”) and Jack Segal (“Scarlet Rib- 
bons,” “When Sonny Gets Blue”) both 
of whom work closely with CAM/ 
USA as well as with exclusive CAM/ 
USA writer Ralph Towner, respon- 
sible for much of the material on the 
new Paul Winter Consort LP (Capi- 
tol) produced by George Martin. 

In addition to publishing the 
soundtrack music of “The Anonymous 
Venitian” and Fellini’s “The Clowns” 
as the firm continues to hold its posi- 
tion as the leading publisher of inter- 
national film scores), rock and pop 
efforts also include the material on 
Bang’s Capitol album and “In Time,” 
a out from the up-coming Engelbert 
Humperdinck album (Parrot). 

Mixing Film And Rock 

Vitorio Bennedetto, CAM/USA’s 
general manager points out that if 
one were to play the entire score of 
each film the firm has acquired, it 
would take more than six months to 
complete the cycle. An effort to link 
the film score and pop /rock publishing 
efforts of the firm has taken its first 
step with the inclusion of two 
Lighthouse songs (“Love Of A Wom- 
an,” “Sing, 'Sing, Sing”) in the new 
Marcello Mastroianni film, “Permette. 
. . Rocco Papaleo.” Benedetto em- 
phasizes the importance of the inter- 
national scope of the organization. 
“Outside the United States, there are 
two other ‘Americas’: Europe and 
Japan are both important markets 
not to be overlooked.” And each area 
has its own advantages. While 
soundtrack albums account for a 
smaller percentage of the total LP 
market in a country like France, the 
publisher is entitled to collect royal- 
ties set at a fixed box office percen- 
tage. 

According to Benedetto, the de- 
mand for American music outside the 
U.S. was the chief factor in the firm’s 
decision to expand into new fields. 

New Mgmt Team 
At Advantage 

NEW YORK — Advantage Sound 
Studios, Inc., an established record- 
ing complex, is now operating under 
a new management team. The corpo- 
rate name is Bean Stalk Corporation. 
Richard Postrell, Bean Stalk presi- 
dent, reports however, that the Ad- 
vantage name is being retained. The 
recording studio located at 911 8th 
Avenue has undergone a complete

Randell, exec vice president, pointed 
out that the technical staff has been 
selected for its performance record.

Mack and an assistant Victor Arlen 
complete the engineer staff. John Ven- 
able is technical director and Peter

as a 16-track studio, and eight and 
4-track facilities. The studio number 
is: (212) 757-0388.

Court Upholds Stigwood On Superstar' 


Grammy Starts 
Nominations 

HOLLYWOOD — Nominating for the 
14th Annual Grammy Awards begins 
this week as voting members of 
NARAS receive first round general 
membership ballots and Eligibility 
Lists. The lists, from which mem- 
bers will nominate, contain over 3000 
entries in 39 performance and com- 
position categories, covering fields 
such as pop, country, rhythm and 
blues, classical, jazz, spoken and 
documentary, etc. 

In addition, craft nominations in 
five other categories are being made 
separately by special committees of 
arrangers, engineers, art directors 
and annotators in all Record Academy 
chapters. Deadline for receipt of the 
general membership ballots by Has- 
kins & Sells Los Angeles is Jan. 4, 
1972. As in previous years, Record 
Academy members participating in 
the general ballot will be limited in 
the number of fields in which they 
may nominate, and again have been 
reminded to base their selections 
solely upon artistic and technical ex- 
cellence. 

The nominations will be announced 
by the Record Academy on Jan. 31, 
and will be followed by a second 
round of voting to select the winners. 
In this second round, the entire voting 
membership will be offered oppor- 
tunities to vote in the craft categories 
as well. 

The winners of the 14th Annual 
Grammy Awards will be revealed 
next March, many on the nationwide 
live Grammy Awards telecast. 

Trustees Awards 

NEW YORK— Members of the Rec- 
ord Academy have just been solicited 
by the national awards committee to 
make recommendations for special 
merit awards, known as Trustees 
Awards. They do not always fall 
within the framework of the regular 
Grammy Awards. 

In a special mailing, members were 
asked to recommend not only in- 
dividuals who have made “an out- 
standing contribution in the perform- 
ing or technical fields during the past 
year or over a period of time,” but 
also “outstanding classical composi- 
tions, extended jazz works or elec- 
tronic compositions, important reis- 
sues or unusually comprehensive new- 
ly-recorded projects.” 

Because such recommendations 
must attain a three-quarters vote of 
the National Board to receive a 
Grammy, the Academy has bestowed 
very few such honors. Thus, NARAS 
members have been urged to use great 
discretion when submitting recom- 
mendations, and to accompany them 
with well-documented statements de- 
tailing the qualifications for their 
proposed awards. 

Deadline for receipt of members’ 
recommendations is Dec. 31. 

Chess/Janus 
Names Riley 
Promo Dir. 

NEW YORK — A1 Riley has been 
named national promo director for 
Chess/Janus Records, announces label 
president Marvin Schlachter. Riley 
joined Janus Records as R & B promo 
director in June of 1970 and became 
involved with Chess when the two 
labels merged a year later. 

Riley spent six years with Liberty 
Records and its affiliate labels, leaving 
as national promo director for Minit/ 
Blue Note/Solid State Records. He 
began as a clerk at Liberty and sub- 
sequently rose to salesman in the 
greater New York area, branch promo 
man, east coast regional promo direc- 
tor for Blue Note/Solid State Rec- 
ords and national sales and promo 
director for Minit Records. 

“. . . under his direction, we will 
be able to give our artists even more 
of the concentrated promotion neces- 
sary to help establish them as major 
acts in the record market,” Schlachter 
said. 


NEW YORK — A pattern is emerg- 
ing from numerous court decisions 
that have established and re- 
established the rights of the 
plaintiffs, The Robert Stigwood Orga- 
nisation and MCA, to “Jesus Christ — 
Superstar.” 

A decision handed down by Federal 
Judge Robert Morgan in the Peoria 
Federal Court, established that defen- 
dants Mid-America Rock Organiza- 
tion and Hank Skinner could not put 
on a scheduled unauthorized version 
of “Jesus Christ — Superstar,” and 
also that the auditorium, Exposition 
Gardens, was prohibited from housing 
the production. 

In addition to enjoining defendants 
from putting on any production of 
“Jesus Christ — Superstar,” the courts 
have also ruled in favor of Stigwood 
so that alleged pirate companies are 
restricted in their advertising to the 
extent that they may not use identifi- 
cation of such concert performances 
with JC — SS billing. Despite the court 
ruling, some promoters and producers 
are flouting this restriction. 

The Stigwood organisation has 
won injunctions in a vast majority of 
the cases. In only a few instances 
where Stigwood has not been fa- 
vored, the plaintiffs claim it has been 
due to their late notification of the 
engagement of a pirate, and their 
subsequent inability to file a brief in 
time to enjoin the show. The one ex- 
ception was in Milwaukee, where the 


Federal Court refused to grant an 
injunction because of doubts that the 
Stigwood Organisation could win on 
the merits of the case. The more re- 
cent Peoria decision (Milwaukee is in 
the same judicial district as Peoria) 
indicated a lack of authority in the 
earlier (Milwaukee) opinion. 

Federal Court in New York has 
also delineated when and how Super- 
star music can be used by unlicensed 
concert promoters. Unlicensed promot- 
ers have thus far depended upon 
their ASCAP license for protection in 
the performance of material from the 
rock opera. Where no ASCAP license 
is held, the promoters are said to be 
without legal recourse. ASCAP has 
now withdrawn the JC — SS music 
from its blanket license — a restriction 
that is now being challenged in the 
courts. 

Zynczak To

NEW YORK— Joseph Zynczak, for- 
mer rice president and house counsel

Promote Lourie At 
Epic/Col Custom; 
Name Two Execs 

NEW YORK — Ron Alexenburg, vice 
president of Epic and Columbia Cus- 
tom Labels, sales and distribution, 
has announced the promotion of 
Charles Lourie to associate director 
of merchandising. 

Lourie will be responsible to Alex- 
enburg for the creation and develop- 
ment of overall merchandising and

aging, including cover, title and liner 
notes for all product including tape

ment of all sales support material.

fields of distribution, rack-jobbing and 
retailing at an early date. In John 
Jossey, we feel that we are indeed 
fortunate to possess a broadly-ex- 
perienced, imaginative executive cap- 
able of bearing responsibility for in-

mental efforts in these important 
areas of record distribution and mar- 
keting.”

ways placed heavy emphasis on the 
importance of the international ex- 
posure of its vast copyrighted reper- 
tory and 1971 was no exception. Dur- 
ing this period, its international de- 
partment was extremely active in mu- 
sic circles throughout the world, 
offering its publisher-affiliates exten- 
sive promotion of all of the repertory 
in all of the world.

sage being a preventive, not a cure.” 

Rodin also mentioned last week 
that he was working out a mail order 
deal with Mattel Toys, the company 
that sponsored the NBC television 
specials around which the album con- 
cept was built. “They were behind us 
from the start,” he said, “and we’re 
seeking their support now.” 

Earlier this month (Dec. 8) MCA 
Records president Mike Maitland re- 
ceived a certificate of thanks from 
Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty, ac- 
knowledging that the company is do- 
nating part of its proceeds from sales 
of the album ( 5 r /r of list) to the Na- 
tional Council on Drug Education. 

(Note: The National Council, with 
97 member organizations nation- 
wide, is headquartered at 1211 Con- 
necticut Ave., Suite 212, Washington,

Wexler Donates 
French Art To 
Calif. Institute 

VALENCIA, CALIF.— Atlantic Rec- 
ords exec vp Jeny Wexler has gifted 
California Institute of the Arts with 
five paintings by 20th century French 
masters. Two of the five are by Rene 
Magritte — “La Vie Secrete” (1929) 
and “Les Orgues de la Soiree” 
(1954). One each by Fernand Leger, 
Yves Tanguy and Paul Deluaux com- 
prise the remainder of the gift, valued 
in excess of $200,000. 

Acknowledging receipt was Robert 
W. Corrigan, president of the school, 
who expressed the gratitude of “the 
entire community” of California In- 
stitute. Its Valencia campus was 
opened only this year. 

“Not only will the paintings be of 
value to our students from an aesthet- 
ic point of view,” said Corrigan, “but 
at the appropriate time it will provide 
us with substantial financial assis- 
tance.” 


April-Blackwood 

(cont’d from page 7) 

that there isn’t enough nublishing 
exec talent around. “Young people 
are not being attracted to publishing. 
They may start in it, but soon get 
other ideas of going into producer 
and/or A&R work. This certainly 
leaves youthful competition in pub- 
lishing wide open.” 

At April-Blackwood itself, the ex- 
posure of its material is vast. There 
are currently 30 singles and 104 al- 
bum cuts on release. One reason for 
this wide coverage, Diamond cites, is 
a consistent process of contact work. 
Also, April-Blackwood writers receive 
printed information on recording 
dates and deadlines, and are thus 
prepared to submit or even write ma- 
terial for certain artists. 

The writing staff is highlighted by 
Laura Nyro, a recent addition thanks 
to CBS’ purchase fo her Tuna Fish 
Music, Nillson and James Taylor, a 
trio Diamond calls the “Triple Crown 
of writers.” In recent months, the Ad- 
drisi Bros., Dr. Hook & the Medicine 
Show and Rick Garden have joined 
the staff, which also includes Gary 
Puckett, Brian Augar, Gilbert O’Sul- 
livan, the Byrds, Genya Ravan, 
Blood, Sweat & Tears, among others. 
Diamond also cites a pending deal to 
bring the catalog of a top rock group 
into the company’s fold. 

Diamond maintains that he has 
geared the company’s offices at 1650 
Broadway as an “informal” gathering 
place for writers, producers and art- 
ists, an attitude verified by a visitor’s 
appearances at the offices. 

Other key executives at the New 
York office are Lucy Coccia, head of 
administration, and David Franco, 
chief of international operations. 
Mike Sukin, CBS director of business 
affairs, w r orks closely with Diamond. 
Elliot Sober is west coast profession- 
al manager. 

Internationally, April-Blackwood 
wholly owns 25 operations in key 
markets around the globe. Diamond 
expects to be on hand at next month’s 
MIDEM meeting in Cannes, France.

THE STARS AND STRIPES 


Thursday, June 24, 1971 


GIs in Germany Take Free Ride 
On Grand Funk With Humble Pie 


ROCK HAPPY — Here is just part of the crowd of 7,000 which thronged Conn Barracks airstrip 


the stars three hours later. 

Grand Funk immediately set 
a torturous pace and gained 
momentum for the next two 
hours. Famer roamed across 
the stage playing, singing and 
swirling his long brown locks. 
Brewer pounded and manipulat- 
ed the drums with an intensity 
that included using his head as 
a drum stick. Only quiet and 
docile Schacher, expending all 
his energy on the bass guitar, 
appeared calm. Their sounds 
merged into an explosion of 
immense proportions pushed by 
6,000 watts of amplification that 
has made Grand Funk one of 
the hottest and loudest rock 
groups. 

Last year the group sold 
more albums and tapes — 10 
million plus — in the United 
States than any other artists. 
This year the Grand Funk ex- 
pects to gross around $15 mil- 
lion and the group averages 
$60,000 a performance. 

Manager Terry Knight, from 
Flint, Mich., as are his charg- 
es, explained the motive behind 
the free concert for the troops 
in Schweinfurt: 

Not Impromtu 

“The concert was really not 
a spur-of-the-moment decision. 
Last January we indicated to 
the Pentagon that we would be 
interested in playing for the 
troops but we didn’t receive a 
reply. With the Munich date be- 
ing canceled, everything start- 
ed falling into place. We were 
glad to do it.” 

Grand Funk, although pres- 
ently probably the highest paid 
group, has frequently given 
free concerts and plans to have 
another one in London’s Hyde 
Park July 3. 

“Politics has nothing to do 
with it,” continued Knight. “We 
just want to play for the broth- 
ers and sisters anywhere in 
the world. And that includes 
Vietnam.” 

Paris USO Club Offers 
Free July 4th Buffet 

PARIS (Special) — All mili- 
tary personnel and their depen- 
dents are invited to a free In- 
dependence Day buffet on July 
4 at the Paris USO Club, 93 
Champs Elysees. The buffet, to 
be prepared by the Hotel 
Prince de Galles, will be 
served from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. 

For further information or 
reservation forms, write Paris 
USO Club at APO 09777 or tele- 
phone Paris 225-8760. The club 
will also make hotel reserva- 
tions for personnel planning to 
visit here over the holiday 
weekend. 


PERCUSSION— Doo Brewer takes off on a hot lick. 


PLUCKER — Singer and guitarist Mark Farner does his thing 


FAN-TASTIC — The expression on this young lady’s face mirrors 
fairly accurately the fans’ reception of the rock concert. 


By BRUCE JOHNSON 
Staff Writer 

SCHWEINFURT, Germany 
t (S&S) — Can you dig it? Grand 
Funk Railroad, considered the 
premier group in rock, giving a 
free concert for GIs in Ger- 
many? 

After four days of hectic plan- 
ning following the cancellation 
of the group’s Munich concert, 
due to past rock riots. Grand 
Funk Railroad and the British 
group Humble Pie performed 
an outdoor concert on the air- 
strip at Conn Barracks here 
Tuesday night. 

It was quite a bizarre scene 
as about 7,000 GIs and depen- 
dents sat on the plush green 


grass between runways while 
the groups played on a make- 
shift stage. On each side of the 
stage, 2^-ton trucks were 
parked so their beds could be 
used for speaker platforms 
while tanks 300 yards away il- 
luminated the setting with spot- 
lights. 

The concert, sponsored by 
USAREUR Special Services 
and the 3rd Inf Div, started at 
8 p.m. under clear skies with 
Humble Pie playing as the sun 
was setting behind the stage. It 
ended with Grand Funk— gui- 
tarist Mark Farner, bassist Mel 
Schacher and drummer Don 
Brewer — receiving a thunder- 
ous ovation of thanks beneath

.What 

it takes 


to be 


l-y 




1971 was a very good year for the Famous Music 
Corporation. It showed the world that we’ve got what it 
takes! 

We owe our success to eight of the most exciting 
labels in the business. We’ve got the artists that America 
most wants to hear. 

There’s Melanie, riding high on the charts for 
Neighborhood Records. 

Or Commander Cody, Detroit, and Ralph McTell 
on Paramount. 

We’re famous in country because of million dollar 
names like Hank Thompson, Roy Clark, and Tommy 
Overstreet on Dot Records. 

And we’re going to be even more famous! You’ll 
hear why with the sounds of Billy Joel, Burton & Cunico, 
Kyle and Mama Lion on Family Records. 

Or Arthur Gee and Albert Collins on Tumbleweed 
Records. 

More excitement? It’s Blue Thumb. Enter Mark- 
Almond. And soon to be released — the already famous 
Dave Mason. We've even got “Lenny”, the original cast 
album from the hit Broadway show! 

Two more labels you’ll be hearing good things 
from! Just Sunshine and Greene Bottle Records. 

The Famous Music Corporation is building a beau- 
tiful future, eight ways. We’ve got what it takes, and 
invite you to share it. It’s going to be a very good year.

We’re 
playing 
this game 

to win. 

This year the stakes got pretty high 
in the record industry. 

Next year they'll be even higher. 

Success is mandatory; failure 
is intolerable. 

We're playing the game now like there 
was no other record company in the 
entire world. 

And we've got the people — and 
the artists — and the product — 
and the lines of communication 
— to make it happen. 

71 was a turning point for RCA Records. 
The RCA Recopoly board shows you why 
and how. 

And 1972? 

We're playing to win all the way.

Oklahoma City, Okla. 



I Owe It All to My Mother, 
You and the IRS. 


From my mother I got the encourage- 
ment to begin. From you I got the 
encouragement to continue. And from 
the Internal Revenue I learned 
'What Price Glory?'. 

Thanks, mom, for the encouragement 
Thanks, everyone, for the support. 

And, IRS, please don't take it, 
it's all I've got. 

“Friend", Freddie's new 
album, available in 8

part of the Nash- 
boro Group in

Ham, Tara Team On Projects 


NEW YORK— A1 Ham, president of 
A1 Ham Productions, Inc., and Dick 
Broderick, founder of Tara Interna- 
tional, will be working together on a 
number of international recording 
projects. 

Ham is currently represented on the 
charts as producer and arranger of 

‘Godspell’ Goes 
International 

NEW YORK— “Godspell” has gone 
international. The religious rock & 
roll play is opening around the world 
after its initial success on off- 
Broadway. 

The original cast album, released 
on Bell Records and already on the 
charts for some time, is receiving sub- 
stantial regional sales boosts from 
each new opening. The Los Angeles 
opening at the Mark Taper Forum on 
Nov. 4 was successful enough so that 
the company will follow the pattern 
set in N.Y. of moving to a larger 
theater by opening at the L.A. Ivar 
on Dec. 21. Other companies opened 
in November and are playing Lon- 
don, Hamburg and Melbourne. The 
Boston opening at the Wilbur Theatre 
on Dec. 11 was attended by capacity 
crowds. 

In addition to the companies al- 
ready in production, “Godspell” will 
open in Chicago in January, Wash- 
ington, D.C. in March and San Fran- 
cisco in April. The Paris show will 
open later this month and 1972 open- 
ings are planned for Italy and Belgi- 
um. 


the Hillside Singers’ single “I’d Like 
To Teach the World to Sing (in Per- 
fect Harmony)”, inspired by the in- 
ternational Coke theme, “I’d Like to 
Buy the World A Coke”. The record 
has been released internationally and 
is now the title song of the group’s 
first album on Metromedia Records. 
Tara International has been involved 
in the development of the single. 

Several weeks ago Ham returned 
from London where he produced four 
original songs with the international 
singing star, Adamo. They will be 
included in an English language al- 
bum by the singer, with a label deal 
to be set by Ham for the U.S. and 
Canada. Ham will also represent Ada- 
mo’s publishing interests in the U.S. 
and Canada. 

In the realm of international rep- 
resentation, Tara has taken on the 
Longines Symphonette account. The 
company handles foreign licensing 
deals for numerous labels, including 
the Mega, Royal American, Golden 
and Ember labels. Broderick has just 
concluded a label deal for a new Ca- 
nadian talent, Peter Thom. Thom is 
completing an album, which is being 
produced by Harry Palmer and A1 
Ham, and will be handled by the Phil- 
ips organization in all countries of 
the world except the U.S. and Cana- 
da. 

In addition to the projects men- 
tioned above, Tara is also coordinat- 
ing the country music tour of the 
Far East, which will be jointly spon- 
sored by the CMA and the United 
Nations. Both Ham and Broderick are 
making plans to attend the upcoming 
' MIDEM Convention. 



FOUR MUSICAL GENTLEMEN— Lyricist John Guare, Lee Young, ABC/ 
Dunhill producer; Tommy Mottola (standing) of Chappell Music, and com- 
poser Galt MacDermot gather at A&R studios for the “Two Gentlemen Of 
Verona” recording sessions. Cast album from the Broadway show will be 
available in mid December.

Sherman Active 
On Four Fronts 

NEW YORK— Composer Garry Sher- 
man is enjoying a period of quadran- 
gular activity, with projects in the 
commercial, legit, feature film and 
classical worlds currently occupying 
his time. 

Chief Orchestrator for Coca-Cola, 
he has just completed several Coke 
commericials, on-camera spots for 
recording star Billie Joe Royal and 
radio commercials for multi-million 
record selling artist Bobby Goldsbo- 
ro. Sherman has also completed the 
Christmas version of “Buy the World 
a Coke,” and has been set to do addi- 
tional work on the McCann Erickson 
Miller Beer campaign. 

In the Theatrical World, Sherman, 
musical supervisor and chief orches- 
trator for the Broadway hit “Purlie,” 
recently organized the musical aspects 
of the national company, which began 
its tour to capacity audiences in Phil- 
adelphia Nov. 21. On the feature film 
front, Sherman, who has been in- 
volved with “Midnight Cowboy”, “Al- 
ice’s Restaurant” and “Been Down So 
Long It Looks Like Up To Me.” has 
been assigned the musical supervisor 
reins for the new and as yet untitled 
Alan Funt feature about money. 

Twice nominated for the Pulitzer 
Prize for his serious compositions, 
Sherman has composed the first 
movement of a new concerto for gui- 
tar and orchestra which was per- 
formed recently in Vienna, Berlin, 
Munich, Amsterdam and London by 
the young American virtuoso, Louis 
Hemsey. 

Hot City Dates 

MIAMI — Sam Coslow, president of 
Flamingo Music of Miami, Fla., has 
set two dates for new Flamingo rock

at The Climax in Miami, major teen 
club Dec. 12 through 24. Dec. 25 and 
26 Hot City will appear with Alice 
Cooper at Pirate’s World in Ft. 
Lauderdale, the largest auditorium in 
Southern Florida. Hot City’s new sin- 
gle is “Leaving” on London Records. 


Boatner Bows 
‘Life Of Christ’ 

NEW YORK— Professor Edward 
Boatner will present his vocal produc- 
tion of “The Life Of Christ” at Phil- 
harmonic Hall, Feb. 12. The play of 
Afro-American spirituals features a 
40-voice chorus, dramatic readings 
and dances that interpret Christ’s 33 
years on earth. 

This being the 100th anniversary of 
the Fisk Jubilee Singers, Boatner has 
announced that the concert will be 
dedicated to the event. The concert 
will be costumed with garments de- 
picting the slave days of the 1850’s 
and 60’s. Part of the net proceeds will 
go to the Art of Black Music Founda- 
tion for scholarships, and to the 
American Missionary Assoc. A na- 
tional college tour is slated for 1972.

cashbox / singles reviews 


( Picks ot the Week 

THE SUPREMES (Motown 1195) 

Floy Joy (2:34) (Jobete, BMI — W. Robinson) 

Smoky wrote this one for the girls and it’s much in the tradition of “Baby 
Love.” Basic footstomper could go all the way for them, pop and soul. Flip: no 
info, available. 

ANDY WILLIAMS (Columbia 45531) 

Music From Across The Way (3:40) (Intersong/Chappell, ASCAP — C. Sigman, J. 
Last) 

Andy’s most memorable effort in many a sweet side will please Top 40 and 
MOR audiences no end. The Williams' touch should make this a rival for his 
“Moon River” theme. Flip: “The Last Time I Saw Her” (3:18) (Warner Bros., 
ASCAP — G. Lightfoot) 

FACES (Warner Bros. 7545) 

Stay With Me (4:37) (WB, ASCAP— R. Wood, R. Stewart) 

The magnetism that is Rod Stewart attracts topflight performance from Faces, 
and the “Maggie May” man now has a dual career cut out for himself for cer- 
tain. Flip: “You’re So Rude” (3:41) (WB, ASCAP — I. McLagan, R. Lane) 

JOHNNIE TAYLOR (Stax 0114) 

Standing In For Jody (4:24, 3:42) (Groovesville, BMI— B. Newsome, K. Barker) 
After “Hijackin’ Love” he’s got Jody on his mind again, and another r&b/Top 
100 hit on his hands. He hardly knows how to miss. Flip: no info, available. 

VAN MORRISON (Warner Bros. 7543) 

Tupelo Honey (3:59) (Caledonia Soul/WB, ASCAP — V. Morrison) 

Title track from LP that begat “Wild Night” single will give Morrison another 
Top 40 chart item with his unmistakable sound. Flip: no info, available. 

TEN YEARS AFTER (Columbia 45530) 

Baby Won’t You Let Me Rock 'N Roll You (2:15) (Chrysalis for Chrys-A-Lee, 
ASCAP— A. Lee) 

Alvin Lee’s personal tribute to the r&r radio of yore should give his group a 
strong follow-up to “I’d Love To Change The World.” Pleasingly dynamite. Flip: 
no. info, available. 

BARRY MANN (New Design 1005) 

When You Get Right Down To It (3:15) (Columbia Screen Gems, BMI — B. Mann) 
The man who once put the bomp can now put his everything into performing 
as well as songwriting, and he does. Ronnie Dyson hit should be even bigger 
this time around. Never mushy, yet quite romantic. Flip: no info, available. 

SEDAKA (Kirshner 291) 

I'm A Song (Sing Me) (2:45) (Don Kirshner/ATV, BMI — Sedaka, Greenfield) 

Neil will be sung, played and hummed by just about everyone with this cut 
from his “Emergence” LP, his first in ten years. Disk should put him back in 
the strong singles groove. Flip: no info, available. 

BILLY PRESTON (A&M 1320) 

I Wrote A Simple Song (3:28) (Irving/Wep, BMI — B. Preston, J. Greene) 

Pianist who emerged as a superstar at the Bangla Desh Benefit Concert now 
has the records to prove it. His amplification of Melanie’s “Look What They Done 
To My Song” philosophy will place him high on the Top 100, where he belongs. 
Flip: no info, available. 

ROBERTA FLACK (Atlantic 2851) 

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (3:59) (Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI — C. King, 
G. Coffin) 

Gal who’s equally comfortable at Carnegie or the Apollo reads the Shirelles 
classic sweeter than it’s ever had it before. Should please Top 40, MOR, FM 
and r&b markets simultaneously. Flip: no info, available. 

VANITY FARE (DJM 70029) 

The Big Parade (2:52) (Don Kirshner/ATV, BMI — Sedaka, Greenfield) 

Song has that “Those Were The Days” magic and the group should soon be 
hitchin’ another ride up the charts. Top 40 and MOR must. Flip: “Nowhere To 
Go” (4:08) (Dick James, BMI — Allix, Brice et al) 

( Newcomer Picks ) 

CLIMAX (Carousel 30055) 

Precious And Few (2:43) (Caser’s/Emerald City, ASCAP — W. Nims) 

The re-organized Outsiders have a Top 40 ballad which has already conquered 
markets as diverse as Honolulu and Buffalo, so they must be doing something 
right. Flip: “Park Preserve” (3:47) (same credits) 

DENNY DOHERTY & JIMMIE HASKELL (Dunhill 1 1318) 

To Claudia On Thursday (3:10) (Mee Moo, BMI — J. Stec, M. Fennelly) 

Tune marries a fantastic instrumental track to an equally pleasant-on-the

Jay Jay Records’ Wally Jagiello 
Marks 20th Anniversary With Label 


MIAMI — Li’l Wally Jagiello, one of 
the pioneers in recorded polka music, 
celebrated his 20th year with Jay Jay 
Records, the label he founded in 1951 
and has since propelled to global in- 
fluence. 

Jagiello’s six-piece polka combo, 
featuring trumpets, violins, rhythm 
and Li’l Wally himself as accordionist 
and lead vocalist, has established the 
“Jagiello sound” as a distinctive ap- 
proach in the polka industry. Under 
the Jay Jay banner, their music is 
sold today on 45’s, LP’s, Little LP’s, 
8-track tape and cassettes. 

Jagiello, who writes the majority 
of their material, initially produced 
Polish-language only product. In 
1954, he recorded his first English 
lyric polka called “Wish I Was Single 
Again” and he reached top 40 in the 
trade charts. . . . commendable for 
this specialized material. Several of 
his subsequent hits include ‘No Beer 
In Heaven’, ‘My Polish Girlfriend’ and 
‘Mini-Skirt’. 

Jagiello advised last week that the 
jukebox operating industry consumes 
a large portion of Jay Jay single 
product (the label has issued over 500 
singles since its formation). In addi- 



Polka vets talk shop on the Lawrence 
Welk TV’er. (Li’l Wally at left with 
Welk).

JACKSON 5 GREATEST HITS — Motown 

M741-L , , , 

Has it been two years since the Jackson 
5 announced that “I Want You Back” and in 
that period of time they have literally deci- 
mated the entire show business world. These 
kids are here to stay! Their greatest hits album 
lives up to the name since it is brimming over 
with million sellers. “ABC,” “The Love You 
Save,” ‘‘Mama’s Pearl” and ‘‘Never Can Say 
Goodbye” are here along with the others. 

We're going out on a limb to predict this 

will be a gold record. 




HOT ROCKS 1964-1971 — The Rolling Stones 
— London 2PS 606/7 

The Stones have their own label now but 
the work they did on London during these 
seven years continues to live on. This two rec- 
ord set could serve as a handy primer for 
groups who would become international leg- 
ends. “Time Is On My Side” gets things go- 
ing and Jagger and company take the listener 
on up through “Satisfaction,” “Ruby Tues- 
day,” "Honky Tonk, Women,” “Gimme Shel- 
ter” and more than a dozen more. Sure to be 
a top selling album in record time. 


ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK LIVE AT THE 
RIVIERA, LAS VEGAS — Parrot XPAS 71051 

One of the genuine singing sensations of 
this or any nation is heard in a live set re- 
corded during a recent Las Vegas engage- 
ment. Engelbert opens with the movie theme, 
“Around The World In 80 Days” and follows 
with such songs as “Help Me Make It Through 
The Night,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Love 
The One You’re With” and many more. A hit 
medley takes in half a dozen of his biggest 
selling singles. Should prove another power 
chart item for this chap. 




STRAIGHT UP — Badfinger— Apple 3387 

Badfinger is pointing straight up and its aim 
is accurate. This new Apple album is sure to 
get fast spin-off from Badfinger’s involvement 
in George Harrison’s Bangla Desh affair, as 
well as the group’s other work with Paul Mc- 
Cartney and Harrison. But Badfinger isn’t go- 
ing to make it on Beatle karma alone. Listen 
to “Baby Blue,” “Suitcase,” “Flying" and 
“Perfection” and hear the group’s inherent 
quality that attracted the heavies to start with. 
The LP was produced by Todd Rundgren, with 
four cuts produced by Harrison. 


VERY YOUNG AND EARLY SONGS — Cat Stev- 
ens — Deram DES — 18061 

Packaged somewhat like a can of LeSeur 
brand peas, these morsels of nourishment 
have a taste quite different than the more 
mature variety, but you can readily tell they 
stem from the same legume. Of the ten titles, 
“The Tramp” tastes most like the new variety 
of Cat, and the furthest thing from it is “Image 
Of Hell,” perhaps Stevens’ attempt to dupli- 
cate “Crying In The Chapel” and establish 
an r&b ballad tradition across the Atlantic. 
The rather lavish orchestrations put the artist 
in a now unfamiliar light, but these are his 
roots. And there will be many musical gard- 
ners interested in a grafting or two.

MARK-ALMOND II — Blue Thumb BTS-32 

You put this album on the turntable, and 
out of necessity, the rest of the world draws 
a rosy-colored blank. Few artists are as suc- 
cessful in creating a totality of mood, one 
which can extend from opening to closing 
band on one side of the LP and still compel 
you to flip it over to begin the cycle anew. 
If this be understatement, then may we be 
forever destined to walk softly and carry one 
Mark-Almond LP under each arm, should one 
lonely phonograph approach us in the dis- 
tance. No doubt it will soon want to bring 
along a friend. If life can’t be a dream, at 
least this jazz/folk/rock concept can approach 
the ideal. 


LIVE-EVIL— Miles Davis— Columbia G30954 

Miles Davis has transcended any musical 
category except to be classified as Miles Davis. 
Springing from his fame in the jazz idiom, he 
has proven again and again that he can broad- 
en his horizons far beyond the realm of pre- 
conceived notion. He has the magnetic charis- 
ma to instill his vision into his topflite back- 
up men such as saxist Wayne Shorter, drum- 
mer Jack DeJohnette, guitarist John McLaugh- 
lin and pianists Joe Zawinul, Chick Corea, 
Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett. And the 
total image is vivid for the listener on “Double 
Image,” “Little Church” and others, including 
a narration by Conrad Roberts.

DYNAMITE — The Supremes & The Four Tops — 
Motown M745L 

When two of the hottest and finest groups 
around get together, dynamite is the word to 
describe what happens. Once again the Su- 
premes and the Tops team up and the results 
are splendid. “If,” “It’s Impossible,” “Hello 
Stranger” and “If I Could Build My Whole 
World Around You” are included. There are 
six more cuts — all incredible. Should glide up 
the chart with ease. 


JULIE & CAROL AT LINCOLN CENTER— Julie 
Andrews and Carol Burnett — Columbia S 31153 

The concert took place in New York last July, 
and it can now make winter that much more 
bearable. The highlight is a 47 song medley 
of the top songs of the 60’s, and it’s a flatter- 
ing reminder of the Mary Martin-Ethel Merman 
TV medley of so long ago. Two talented charm- 
ers in comedy and song. 




CHER— United Artists UXS— 88 

With “Gypsys Tramps And Thieves” and a 
new TV series, she’s back on top again. United 
Artists has an attractively priced double-LP 
set here which collects her early hits like “All 
I Really Want To Do,” "Bang Bang,” “Alfie” 
and “You’d Better Sit Down Kids” as well as 
her fantastic readings of “Sunny,” “Elusive 
Butterfly,” “You Don’t Have To Say You Love 
Me” and “Homeward Bound” just to name a 
few. Certainly one of the finest programs the 
thrush has ever assembled in one package 
and one that’s bound to cause re-newed inter- 
est in the material. 


STANDING OVATIONS— Gladys Knight & The 
Pips — Soul S736L 

Surely one of the most resilient acts in 
the business (they’ve been going strong since 
“Every Beat Of My Heart” in 1960), this LP 
should prove a worthy successor to their “If 
I Were Your Woman” package. Standards are 
given that special touch of Pip (“Fire And 
Rain,” “Help Me Make It Through The Night,” 
“The Long And Winding Road”) and two strong 
new entries (“Master Of My Mind,” “No One 
Could Love You More”) should prove success- 
ful follow-ups to their currently charted “Make 
Me The Woman That You Go Home To” which 
leads this set off to a fully royal Knightly start. 




VikkiCarr 

Superstar 


SUPERSTAR — Vikki Carr — Columbia C31040 

You can always depend on this songstress 
to come up with pleasantly diverting fare. 
Her latest entry in the MOR category is chock 
full of songs which are beautifully tailored to 
the Carr style. “The Night They Drove Old 
Dixie Down,” “How Can You Mend A Broken 
Heart?” “Loving Him Was Easier,” and “Crazy 
Love” are four of the really standout cuts but 
the whole album is a treat.

PAPA JOHN CREACH — Grunt FTR — 1003 

The third LP released on the Jefferson Air- 
plane's Grunt label, this set by violinist Papa 
John more clearly defines the roots and goals 
that he has brought onboard the Airplane. 
Papa John certainly lives up to the Airplane’s 
ideal of having free flow with as many musi- 
cians as possible. Not only are all the rest of 
the Airplane along for the ride, but there are 
varied combinations of backup groups includ- 
ing biggies such as Carlos Santana, Jerry Gar- 
cia, Quicksilver’s John Cipollina and, as a spe- 
cial added attraction, Jack Bonus. Song’s such 
as “Plunk A Little Funk’’ show that Creach is 
right into the JA’s rhythm groove, while “Papa 
John’s Down Home Blues” indicates that the 
Airplane should pick up some of his mellow, 
traditional approach. 


WE’D LIKE TO TEACH THE WORLD TO SING— 
The New Seekers — Elektra EKS-74115 

Currently on the single chart with their ver- 
sion of the delightful teaching song, The New 
Seekers present an LP which includes that 
ditty and eleven more songs. This is a real 
good timey group— they're a positive up, 
whether they’re going to work on Carole King’s 
“Child Of Mine” or romping along with Mel- 
anie’s “Nickel Song.” A fresh and exuberant 
record that’s really fun to listen to. 




HAPPY TO BE JUST LIKE I AM— Taj Mahal— 
Columbia 30767 

Taj Mahal is on safari through unexplored 
regions of funk. His expedition is very savvy, 
including Jesse Ed Davis on guitar, Rocky Dzi- 
Dzournu on congas and Andy Narell on steel 
drums. Somehow Taj keeps the backbeat go- 
ing throughout the syncopated set, but still 
delivers mellow vocals on top of it all. His 
crafty creativity excells on “Eighteen Ham- 
mers,” “Black Spirit Boogie,” "Chevrolet” and 
a unique version of “Oh Susanna." 




BELL + ARC— Columbia C31142 

Some have it, some don’t. Once all the 
comparisons (and they are almost obligatory) 
between Graham Bell and Joe Cocker have 
been washed away and folks start listening 
beyond that to the music of iBell -f- Arc, it 
will become apparent that this quartet is one 
of those that has it in abundance. Recom- 
mended for your listenin’ pleasure: “High 
Priest Of Memphis,” “Yat Rock,” “She Be- 
longs To Me” and “So Long, Marianne.” Basic 
straightahead rock, with just a fine amount 
of garnishment, is what Bell 4- Arc dish out 
with a pitchfork. Are you ready? 


Pop Best Bets 


REST ON ME — Kim Carnes — Amos AAS7016 

There are song stylists and there are song 
stylists. But only once in a while are there 
artists to take a song and work it, shaping it 
and molding it to make it their own. Kim 
Carnes is such an artist and this is her calling 
card. Listen to what she makes of the Bee 
Gee’s song “To Love Somebody” and then 
sample “Fell In Love With A Poet,” a fine 
song which she penned herself. A word about 
her backup band — they’re superb. All in all, 
a fabulous album. 




LOOKING FOR YOU— Alzo — Ampez A10130 

Title tells of a search which should come 
to a happy end once the sounds therein get 
out into the open to freshen the air for all 
of us. Bob Dorough who is a cult in the jazz 
world of piano-vocalists has produced the artist 
in a bright and varied manner, so that each 
cut can take the now ragged picture of a con- 
temporary singer/songwriter and restore it to 
its original brilliance. Single of “That’s Alright 
(I Don’t Mind It)” is the best introduction we 
can suggest. Afterwards, the audience should 
be on a first-name only basis with him for 
some time to come. 


JOE THOMAS IS THE EBONY GODFATHER— 
Today TLP1004 

This is put-your-feet-up-on-the-chair, lay- 
your-head-back and close-your-eyes kind of 
music. It’s also good jazz. Joe Thomas is an 
excellent flute player and he has an uncanny 
knack for knowing just when to draw back 
and let his band go to work. Much of the 
material on the set is original and among the 
best tracks are “Fanny Fanny” and “Chitlins 
And Cuchifritos” and “Talk To Me.” 




TRAVELIN’ LADY— Rosalie Sorrels— Sire SI 
5902 

When Rosalie Sorrels sings you know you're 
not listening to some little girl. She is a woman 
who, true to the title of her album, has traveled 
around some. More importantly she’s put her 
experiences to good use, namely some of the 
finest damn songs to be heard these days. “All 
I Ever Do Is Say Goodbye” and “She Can Do 
Without You” are as nice as spring rain, as is 
“Rock Me To Sleep,” written by U. Utah 
Phillips. A class album from someone who is 
the genuine article. 


THE DECLASSIFIED JEAN SHEPHERD— Mer- 
cury SRM 1 615 

We can say without fear of contradiction 
that there has never been a radio personality 
quite in the same league with Jean Shepherd. 
Now, whether or not you grew up glued to the 
set for his regularly scheduled broadcasts of 
mind ramblings, you can sample a really 
liberal spoonful of his satirical genius via this 
LP on which he touches on the likes of Dr. 
Spock, Ralph Nader, the Reader’s Digest and 
the entire military system of the United States. 
On target and often hilarious stuff. 



a SHANTI 



SHANTI— Atlantic SD 8302 

Whether you put this release by Shanti in 
the category of eastern influenced music or 
jazz or rock doesn’t really matter. What does 
is that this is an adventurous new group with 
a highly original sound. Using such instruments 
as the sarod and the tabla, they have come up 
with an album featuring seven selections. Each 
has something to offer but we particularly 
liked “We Want To Be Free” and “Lord, I’m 
Cornin’ Round.” 


UNFITS 


JULIE BUDD— RCA LSP 4622 

Though remarkably young, Julie Budd has 
already distinguished herself in show business 
to an extraordinary degree. Now she lends her 
gentle breathy voice to eleven songs, among 
them “I Don’t Know How To Love Him,” “The 
Long And Winding Road,” and “You've Got A 
Friend.” Less familiar fare such as a tune en- 
titled "West Side Apartment” also sounds 
ideal in Julie’s hands. A strong contender for 
MOR honors. 




LUCIFER — Invictus ST-7309 

This is a pretty unusual record. It’s camp, 
funny, outrageous, funky and childish all at 
the same time. The lead singer sounds like a 
cross between Moms Mabley and Jerry Lewis; 
his band plays riffs straight from the nineteen 
forties. Yet there’s something oddly appealing 
about the whole thing and you may find your- 
self laughing at more than a few of the ten 
tracks. Keep a sidelong glance on this one.

NEW YORK — TOMORROW ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT WE KNEW YESTERDAY BUT 
WERE AFRAID TO SAY. 

When an artist has made it to the very top, it’s easy to say ‘I told you so.’ 
It’s easy because nobody really knew your personal feelings beforehand. If the 
artist is unsuccessful — nothing is ever said. Ever. Since its inception, the “Insight 
And Sound” column has been almost totally artist oriented. We have never 
hesitated to project our true feelings about a new artist whom we felt would 
succeed. There were many times that we were right, and many times that we were 
wrong. Following is an abbreviated list of some of the talent we feel will make 
their mark in the coming year: 

Gilbert O’Sullivan — (MAM) — The problem seems to be that too many are looking 
at his picture rather than listening to his music! His first single, “Nothing Rhym- 
ed,” looked and sounded like an instant hit. It received lots of airplay, especially 
in underground markets — but that’s where it ended. Gilbert O’Sullivan can’t be 
categorized. His music appeals to everyone. His album, “Himself” is proof 
positive that the talent is there. It may take a while, but Gilbert O’ Sullivan is 
destined to be a star. 

Deep Purple — (Warner Bros.) — Though Deep Purple have finally attained the 
American success they deserve 1972 should put them into the ‘supergroup’ bracket 
based on their dynamic stage show. Led by the finest lead singer in rock, Ian 
Gillan, and the fancy but accurate guitaristry of Ritchie Blackmore, Deep Purple 
will, after another American tour, be respected for their orchestrated material as 
well as their particular brand of driving rock. 

Yes — (Atlantic) — Though “Your Move” seemed to have come from nowhere to 
become a respectable chart single, Yes still haven’t exploded into the group they 
are. Their next album “Fragile,” a complexity of solid songs and intriguing melo- 
dies, should do it for them. If you've never heard of them before, suffice it to say 
that they sound like a cross between the Bee Gees and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. 
Watch for Yes to make their move in the coming year. 

Shawn Phillips — (A&M) — Shawn is now three albums old, but he’s making 
progress. Every new album serves to further expose him to a new audience. His 
songs are very complex and moody, while his lyrics practically paint a picture 
for you. Don’t expect to hear Shawn once and swear by him. It takes a while to 
fully appreciate his talents, but it’s well worth the wait. 

Wild Turkey — (No American LP Yet) — Appropriate name for group featuring 
Robin Trower (Procol Harum) and Glen Cornick (Jethro Tull) who have united 
forces and are just about ready to issue their American debut album. LP doesn’t 
resemble music of Tull or Procol, but is a new direction for a new band. Should 
take Wild Turkey about two albums to really break America in a big way. 



Jesse Winchester — (Bearsville) — Jesse has released only one album thus far. 
LP was released on Ampex, and it was practically panned by the public. Despite 
songs like “Yankee Lady,” “The Brand New Tennessee Waltz,” and “Black Dog,” 
Jesse has gone unnoticed. Kind of like a one man Band, Winchesters’ first album 
lacked the necessary production touch needed to make his songs come alive to 
an audience. Now with new label affiliations, and plenty of time to come up with 
some more interesting material, Jesse could break wide open. Look for his next 
release early in '72. 

(cont’d on page 106) 

THE FIRST ANNUAL “TODDIES” — This is the time when our men in New York 
have been busy thinking up the “Top Ten Albums of the Year.” We’ll get over 
that right away by stating unequivocally that we agree wholeheartedly with 
whatever they’ve chosen. 

Last year, as every year, the Tastemakers have been complaining about how 
nothing new and exciting has come on the scene, and how the music just isn’t 
as great as it ought to be. We were thinking pretty much the same thing around 
here, until our Night Staff and Full-Time Boy Reviewer came up with the 
revelation that most of the acts that impressed him as having more than the 
average amount of appeal during the last year were new — at least, to the 
national scene. At the same time, most of the more “established” acts — yes, 
even “superstars” — to have passed this way struck him as being vastly over- 
rated if their L.A. performances are anything to go by. Based, then, on live 
performances here in L.A., here are his choices for Most Impressive, or Most 
Promising, or some such. The choices are based on talent, not how much of 
their money their press agents are able to spend. And the order is alphabetical. 

(1) The Bells: a Canadian group of some local repute, who finally hit U.S. 
paydirt with “Stay Awhile.” The record is a fairly decent representation of their 
“live” sound; they’re also a good-looking group. Very clean-cut and professional, 
they should get a lot more TV work than they now do. Their only L.A. ap- 
pearance to date has been at Disneyland. Hope they come back soon. 

(2) Buckwheat: we reviewed them at the Whisky, where they came off quite 
well. A few weeks later, at the Topanga Corral, they proved to be a lot more 
than just good. Their music is based in country, blues and rock, and they 
know exactly what they’re doing onstage. A potentially dynamic band, both in 
personal appearance and in record sales. There isn’t space here to get too 
analytical as to why, but you’ve got to see them. 

(3) Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen: among all the supposed 
"country rock” bands, the only one that can play real country music con- 
vincingly. Strong vocally, visually and instrumentally (in that order), they re 
better still, thanks to the recent addition of Bobby Black on steel guitar. 

(4) . The J. Geils Band: we said it in our review — "The best white blues band 
in the world.” 

(5) Grand Funk Railroad: hardly “new,” except to our Night Staff’s now

Cash Box — December 25, 1971 





NEW YORK: (Cont’d from page 104) 

Diane Davidson — (Janus) — Diane will enjoy a tremendous success in ’72, both 
as a singer and songwriter and it will be her forthcoming (and second) album 
which will do it for her. While not exactly slinking onto a stage, she certainly 
gives an audience all the music they could ask for, and once you get into her 
songs, you'll no doubt find her a beautiful woman. Her voice is full-bodied coffee 
with a touch of Southern hickory flavor and it warms you all over. Her songs are 
solid stuff too and no doubt many of her future releases will be covered by already 
established acts. But we’re still confident that the 17-year old guitar playing 
genius will be recognized as such. 

Billy Paul — (Philadelphia International)-— Although produced by Gamble & Huff, 
Paul has a sound few traditionally oriented r&b acts can even dream about 
achieving. He can speed a song up to supersonic pace, or slow it down until it 
looks like its hardly moving faster than a reclining chair. But whatever outward 
speedometer he employs, we get there in style. Filling the existent void in the 
male jazz vocalist department, the cult he has developed in the black community in 
Philadelphia and its environs should quickly spread throughout the nation in ’72. 
He will become a standard by which others are judged. 

Paul Siebel — (Elektra) — Paul Siebel has released two Elektra albums thus far, 
and both are gems. When his first, “Woodsmoke & Oranges” was released, we 
thought it might be the product of years of thought. But then the second, "Jack- 
Knife Gypsy” was issued, and we knew it wasn’t luck. Siebel, with his nasal, al- 
most early Dylanish vocal quality has mastered the art of intricate lyric writing 
and has gracefully combined his lyrics with a fascinating musical accompaniment. 
Sometime early next year, Siebel is due to release his third album. Let’s hope 
that more people stop to listen. 

Jackson Browne — (Asylum) — With the release of his debut album in mid- 
January, Jackson Browne should make the transition from legendary southern 
California folk cult figure to fullscale international star. No one, not even Joni 
Mitchell, has been awaited for as long to come out with a first record. By staying 
away from wax until now, Jackson has been known as a performer only to the 
few who have seen his occassional sets at Los Angeles — area clubs such as the 
Troubadour and Capistrano’s Four Muses. In the meanwhile his reputation as a 
songwriter has been growing since Tom Rush recorded "Shadow Dream Song” in 
1968; other outstanding artists such as Three Dog Night, Hedge & Donna and 
Brewer & Shipley have been recording and performing his tunes. The word-of- 
mouth is there already; Jackson Browne’s album should initiate his coming out 
into the spotlight this year. 

Karen Dalton — (Just sunshine) — Anyone who can sing a Fred Neil song and 
make Fred Neil think that it was her song and not his, can’t stay behind the scenes 
for too much longer. A veteran of the Greenwich Village coffeehouse circuit, Karen 
is a seasoned lady who has developed a style so personal that it was often difficult 
for listeners to really understand her. But this year should be the time that the 
audience catches up to Karen, who will be patiently waiting to weave her deep 
blue spell for the public at large. 

It is virtually impossible for us to list each and every new act that we feel will 
succeed in the coming year. Please understand that those artists listed are repre- 
sentative of our strongest feelings. Please understand, too, that we may very 
well be wrong!

BRIDGET ST. JOHN: AN APPRECIATION 

A few years ago Bridget St. John would have been called an acquired taste. But 
that was before such people as Randy Newman, Melanie and Leonard Cohen 
showed that an unusual voice can be appreciated immediately and need not be 
taken in small and tidy doses over a long period of time. Bridget is a young 
women from Surrey, England and her manner of singing is like crushed velvet. 

You've doubtless heard similes like that before. But unless you’ve heard Bridget 
before, it's impossible to say it any other way. She is really mellow. 

Her first abum, released here by Elektra, went almost completely unnoticed. It 
was called "Ask Me No Questions” and it contained twelve original songs. Even 
now, more than a year later, and after hundreds of playings on this turntable, it 
continues to give. Maybe because it’s unpretentious, honest and so rich in lyrical 
beauty. 

she shows me pine and cedar tree, 
magnolia, yew and tamarisk, 

‘the ever-green is ever-free’ — 
i hear her, i remember this; 
i shuffle with october-leaves 
and worn-out wings of butterflies, 
through water-whispers, rocking-weeds, 
i sing her autumn lullaby. . . . 

Oftentimes an artist like Bridget will be overproduced, but she has escaped 
that. In “Ask Me No Questions,” John Peel kept the accompaniment to a wonder- 
fully laid-back minimum, utilizing just Bridget's own guitar work and that of Ric 
Sanders and John Martyn. On her newest record, "Songs For The Gentle Man,” 
Ron Geesin has followed the same course, creating a warm intimacy of mood 
which is hypnotic. Here, too, we are given the chance to hear Bridget interpret 
other songwriters. Not too surprisingly, she chose Martyn ("Back To Stay”) and 
Donovan (“The Pebble And The Man”). She does each splendidly. 

Bridget has yet to tour the United States and something should be done to 
remedy that lamentable situation. Some of us who have been drawn into her 
music would really like to see her and, speaking for myself, I’d like to thank her 
for turning a lot of rotten New York afternoons into periods of magic.

PASSING REMARKS — Buddy Miles will join England’s Uriah Heep and their 
countrymen Deep Purple on a 17-day tour of the U. S. and Canada. First stop 
is Hollywood, Florida on Jan. 13th from where they’ll be off to Montreal, LA 
and Boise, Idaho. Uriah Heep continues alone after Jan. 31 with a scheduled 
gig at the Whiskey Au Go-Go starting Feb. 1st . . . Shadow Morton returns to 
Ultra-Sonic Studios in Long Island where he earlier had the successful pleasure 
of producing The Shangri-Las, Janis Ian, The New York Rock & Roll Ensemble 
and Vanilla Fudge. Ultra-Sonic has since moved to larger, more exotically equipped 
quarters (16-tr. recorder, 26 channel input board and 18 Dolby "361-A” noise 
reduction systems and has seen Shadow reunited with Janis Ian. Other produc- 
tion ventures for Morton now on-tap include work with GNP (Metromedia) as 
well as Cynara and Merrilee Rush (Scepter) ... Oh Frankie! Dept: Now calling 
himself merely Frank, the once Frankie Avalon has been set for upcoming TV 
shots on the Virginia Graham, Merv Griffin and Johnnie Carson shows. Jan. 15th 
he headlines Gus Gossert's Madison Square Garden Rock Revival Show. His new 
single, out on Regalia is the standard “I’m In The Mood For Love.” 


HOLLYWOOD: (Cont’d from page 104) 

slightly-deafened ears. He still doesn’t like their music much, but gives them 
full points for putting on a Hell of a show. 

(6) Larry Groce: on whom we did an “Insight & Sound" piece a few weeks 
ago, just because he has an interesting story (married his English teacher; is 
a big seller in Christian Science reading rooms). We’ve finally had a chance to 
see him “live” and suggest that he has no less potential as a singer and writer 
of immense commerciality than did Cat Stevens and James Taylor a couple of 
years ago. He’s also great at establishing a rapport with his audience. Question: 
can RCA/Daybreak follow through? In the meantime, listen to his album, play 
it, and keep in mind that he’s even better in person. 

(7) Joy of Cooking: they are a joy, and they do cook. The fact that this group 
is led by two women is not, despite their publicity, all that they have going 
for them. It is, perhaps, inconsequential musically. Lyrically, though, it makes 
all the difference. At the moment, the reason that they aren’t one of the biggest 
groups around seems to be pretty much their own fault; they’d apparently 
rather reach a smaller, more "hip” audience than the masses they could easily 
attract if they’d consent to some of the MOR bookings that have been offered 
them. Play their records anyway; they’re good and deserve the exposure. 

(8) Dave Mason: he plays as well as he writes. Or vice-versa. He’s got a great 
band, too. 

(9) Well, there aren’t as many tied for #9 as you might expect. We liked Cat 
Stevens last time around a lot more than we frankly expected to; he’s a very 
"natural” performer, but a total pro as well. We liked Charlie Starr a lot, too. And 
Johnny "Guitar” Watson. And Mickey Newbury (but can he do it “live?”). And, 
of course, there’s nobody who sings as well as “the Killer,” Jerry Lee Lewis. 
Potentially (that word again) Mott the Hoople is our choice for the monster rock 
band of next year; their albums so far are of uneven quality, and they haven't 
really played the U.S. enough. And T. Rex, and Cheech & Chong (can they keep 
it up?), and you, that one performer (or is it group) who do a solid, professional 
job; without insisting on doing all dull original material and tuning up a lot and 
bitching about the sound system, and, well, you know who you are. . .

HOLLYWOOD— THE OL’ XMAS TREE BALL GAME 

Love is lovelier the seventh time around. 

This column marks our “insight” of the sixth happiness, the start of a 
seventh year with CB. 

Once again it’s time for the annual Monday morn exhumation, the week when 
we tie our “insights” package with mistletoe, nostalgia, penance, palliation, sack- 
cloth and ashes. Fanfaring a few of 71's successful divinities. Disremembering a 
multitude of unretrieved fumbles. 

We kicked off last Dec. 25 with a preview note on Harry Nilsson’s "forthcoming” 
RCA album, “The Point,” suggesting that it was a “slightly absurd coalescence 
of Ray Bradbury's ‘Farenheit 451’ and Pete Seeger’s ‘Abi Yo Yo.’ Still,” we added, 
"it should be his most successful LP to date.” It was. Three points for our side. 
“The Point” for Nilsson. 

A month earlier we had rhapsodized over "Jesus Christ Superstar,” scoring it 
a “brave, substantial and majestic experience ... it will also be an enormous 
commercial success.” A ten-yard toss for us — an 105-yard Superbowl return for 
Decca. 

In January '71 we reminded readers that a few months earlier, when we 
sampled Janis Joplin’s unreleased "Pearl,” we touted "Me and Bobby McGee” 
a “blockbuster single if Columbia elects to pull it out of the abum.” They did. 
Conversion. 

But in the same column we forecast "a strong sleeper” in Bobby Stevens' "All 
Goin' Down Together” single, a cynical-political R&B epic. The record was never 
distributed nationally. A bomb pass — no receivers. 

On Feb. 20 we heralded Elton John’s second U.S. tour, adding that he was 
"the odds-on favorite to cop the Grammy Award as ‘new artist of the year.’ ” 
Fumble. Retrieved by the Carpenters. 

On March 8 we did a piece on the Oscar nominees, proclaiming "For All We 
Know” "the strongest candidate for top honors in the song category . . . Francis 
Lai's ‘Love Story Song’ our favorite in the original score department.” We also 
hinted at a first Oscar for The Beatles, “after being snubbed by the Academy with 
‘Help,’ ‘Hard Day’s Night,’ and ‘Yellow Submarine.' ” Three screen passes — three 
first downs. 

In May we passed along the rumor that Joan Baez would soon be joining the 
A&M label. The rumor persists, even if Joan is still verbally tied to Vanguard. A 
holding penalty. 

In early April we predicted that Three Dog Night’s, “Joy to the World” could 
turn out to be “the biggest selling disk in Dunhill’s history.” A fair catch. 

In late May we chided L.A. Times columnist Joyce Haber for her quote: "Le- 
Grand’s music to ‘Summer of ’42’ sounds as though it were written by Francis 
Lai — a code for ‘Love Story.’ ” We disagreed, finding it "almost as effective as 
LeGrand’s theme to ‘Picasso Summer,’ the most compelling thematic score since 
the ‘Zhivago’ flick ... we fail to find any similarity to the notes penned by Lai and 
LeGrand’s ‘Summer Knows.’ ” “Summer of ’42” turned out to be one of the 
most successful instrumental hits of ’71. 

A few weeks after we wondered again at Haber’s wrong-way excursions into 
the music biz, quoting her "exclusive” that “Larry Uttal has already shaken hands” 
on signing Dionne Warwicke. Another blitz on Haber. 

In July we said that "the most logical new single side from Joni Mitchell’s 
latest LP is (to our ears) ‘All I Want,’ (cut 1, side 1) . . . Reprise hasn't decided 
yet.” Reprise did decide — on two others. Both benched by Mitchell customers. 
We’re still humming “All I Want.” 

Way back in December '70 BCT (Before Carole’s "Tapestry”) we titled Miss 
King “one of the best new acts of the year.” Carole King gets our hands down 
“West Coast Girl of the Year” award for ’71. 

Some of the acts that have given us the most pleasure this past year, on 
record and/or in person, include: King, Elton John, George Harrison, Joni Mit- 
chell, Bread, Kris Kristofferson, Bob Dylan, Laura Nyro, John Stewart, Neil Dia- 
mond, Jake Holmes, Randy Newman, Melanie, Joan Baez. Roberta Flack. The 
Band, Bobby Short, Benny Goodman, New Seekers and Janis Ian. New acts: 
Lesley Duncan, Kim Carnes, Michel Colombier, John Manning, Carol Hall, Don 
McLean, Kate Porter, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Paul and Linda McCartney, 
Helen Reddy, Paul Stookey, Sugarloaf, Carly Simon, Carly Simon and Carly Simon. 

We’ll close this — as we have for the past six — with the Garroway borrowed 
supplication — peace! harvey geller

I’ve been here all the time 

Luther Ingram 

KoKo Records, Distributed by Stax Records, Inc., 98 North Avalon, Memphis, U S. A. 




juucneringraim 

He’s been here 
all the time. 


As a matter of fact about four times. His single, 

“Ain’t That Loving You” held down top ten sp!3t»~emr^ pop and 

R&B charts and his other singles, “Missing You,” “Pily^^* m]U '' 
Lonely” and “You Can Depend On Me” all got more than their share of 
airplay and sales. Luther’s new album is ready now. Produced by 
Johnny Baylor and Willie Hall, with help from the Bar-Kays, 
The (you-know- whose) Movement and Hot, Buttered and Soul on backing vocals, 
“I’ve Been Here All The Time” is Luther Ingram at his very best.

Grateful Dead 
New Raiders 


The Band 
Taj Mahal 

CIVIC AUDITORIM, SAN FRAN- 
CISCO — The Band made one of their 
infrequent treks Westward for this 
Thanksgiving week concert, and at- 
tendees should have been pleased with 
the evening’s show. 

The Bill Graham promotion began 
with Taj Mahal, in his “acoustic” 
role. Forsaking the tubas of his most 
recent Columbia album, Taj per- 
formed a set of numbers ranging 
from blues to Carole King and made 
them all sound as if they had been 
written and performed by a 70-year- 
old Georgia sharecropper. The audi- 
ence responded warmly, bringing the 
artist back for two encores. He was 
such a success, in fact, that one won- 
ders why Mr. Graham didn’t see fit to 
give him a bit of space on the mar- 
quee, if not the tickets. 

Graham himself introduced Mssrs. 
Robertson, Manuel, Danko, Hudson & 
Helm. They proceeded to play a 
routine (for them) set of selections 
from their four Capitol albums, with 
accustomed tightness and skill. 

By now,, it’s legendary how good 
The Band is; as musicians, they’d be 
hard to better. And as a “Sound,” 
they’ve got “civil war rock” pretty 
much to themselves. 

As good as they are, though, they’d 
be even better if they’d loosen up a 
bit and have a more apparent good 
time on stage. Their own and the au- 
dience’s reaction to such things as 
Garth Hudson’s superb ad-lib organ 
intro to “Chest Fever” and the whole 
group’s performance on “Baby Don’t 
Do It” show the possibilities. But at 
present, audience contact is minimal.

Audience 
Crabby Appleton 
Bell & Arc 

WHISKY A GO GO, LA. — Joining 
the two top-billed Elektra artists for 
a two-night run was Columbia’s Bell 
& Arc, in their local debut. 

Top-billed was Audience, direct 
from Merrie Olde Englande. Their 
music has roots in rock and roll, mu- 
sic hall and more contemporary rock, 
probably in that order. They perform 
professionally and capably a program 
of original material. Much of their 
act is satire; their lead singer at one 
point takes the mickey (as they say) 
out of Van Morrison in a way that’s 
long been deserved, and their climax- 
ing drum solo is conceivably the ul- 
timate example of those things — the 
drummer beat anything he could lay 
his hands on, hitting the floor with a 
brass bell and scratching his head 
into the microphone as well. While 
not really as funny, they are some- 
what into the Bonzo spirit, and 
provide a lot of good fun. But it 
might all be a bit too “English” for 
U.S. audiences. 

Crabby Appleton, though, is strictly 
American. The quartet, led by guitar- 
ist/ singer Michael Fennelly, shows the 
ability to become one of the more 
popular groups around — their sound 
is distinctive, and they write and play 
well. Unfortunately, their sense of 
showmanship and visual appeal is vir- 
tually nonexistent. Consequently, they 
come on like a junior high school 
sock hop band. But if they can whip 
their act into as good shape as their 
music, watch out! 

Bel & Arc feature a lead singer 
who’s been watching Joe Cocker a bit 
too carefully. They tear through ma- 
terial like “She Belongs to Me,” 
“Watching the River Flow,” and 
Leonard Cohen’s “So Long Marianne” 
in a manner that indicates that they 
have yet to discover the distinction 
between “heavy” and “heavy- 
handed.” 

t.e. 


FELT FORUM, NYC — It’s funny 
how musical values change. Once 
upon a time, there was something 
called the “star trip.” Rock & roll 
musicians would dress in their flash- 
iest wardrobes, play their most atten- 
tion-grabbing licks and, in general, 
act as though they were gods that 
came down from Olympus to honor 
the peasant listeners with their 
presence. And the listeners swallowed 
the hype, serving to further defy the 
star trippers. 

Also, once upon a time, there was a 
group called the Grateful Dead, who 
was different than everybody else. 
Granted, they were a part of the San 
Francisco sound, but there was some- 
thing that set them aside from the 
Jefferson Airplane and the others. 
They didn’t come riding up in shiny 
silver armour, in fact they wore pret- 
ty funky clothes, just like you and 
me! They weren’t a fantasy, they 
were real people making real music 
just for the sake of seeing how far 
they could ride the notes, and how 
much fun they could have doing it. 
They were accessible; you knew you 
could talk to them about real things 
if you met them in the streets, just 
like any other people. This reality, 
this anti-superstar attitude, is eventu- 
ally what made the Dead so popular 
amongst admirers of reality. 

But then these admirers grew from 
a group into a clique, and from a 
clique into a cult. All of a sudden the 
Dead were superstars, with all the 
fantasy trimmings. This was some- 


Rita Coolidge 
Sweetpie 

GASLIGHT AU GO GO, NYC — The 
last time Rita Coolidge appeared at 
the Gaslight, she was a lady. This 
time around, she’s a woman, too. In 
addition to the light lady’s touch that 
flickers from her jeweled and ringed 
fingertips, Rita has a pair of woman’s 
feet planted firmly in the ground as 
her Southern blues-pop roots. 

There have been musician’s musi- 
! cians and folksinger’s folksingers. 
j For all intents, Rita is a superstar’s 
! superstar, although her modest on- 
stage and offstage personality would 
never show why. The reason why is 
found within — her soul is straight 
and deep and spends little time with 
frivolities. Her ability to get right 
down to the nitty gritty has made her 
constantly in demand at the top re- 
cording sessions, ranging from Leon 
Russell and Joe Cocker to Graham 
Nash, Eric Clapton and A1 Kooper. 

As a background singer, Rita’s 
hallmark was her subtlety, and this 
trait has extended into her solo spot- 
light. Backed by the Dixie Flyers, 
many of whom are old friends of 
hers, she paces her set to start with 
understatement and build slowly. By 
the time she reaches her climax, she 
has totally captivated the listeners, 
rather than throwing it all away ear- 
ly in the set as many would-be 
Joplins do with misplaced screams. 

Rita & the Flyers ran through a 
number of tunes from her new “Nice 
Feelin’ ” LP on A&M, including 
“Family Full Of Soul,” Dylan’s “Most 
Likely You Go Your Way” and the 
title number. On the night we saw 
her, Kris Kristofferson joined Rita 
onstage for a very sentimental ver- 
sion of his “Help Me Make It 
Through The Night” that left very 
little doubt that they would be help- 
ing each other once the show was 
over. 

Sweetpie is a striking individual 
who plays piano and philosophizes in 
a manner similar to Biff Rose. The 
only difference is that Biff is con- 
cerned with beautiful people while 
Sweetpie’s brain is occupied with sex, 
in a beautiful, bawdy way. 

m.p. 


thing they had rebelled against, but 
by rebelling, they ibecame so popular 
that it caught up to them. 

This whole dissertation has nothing 
to do with the delivery of their mu- 
sic, but with its reception by the audi- 
ence. The Dead are playing as far out 
as ever, doing oldies (“Cold Rain & 
Snow”, “Beat It On Down The 
Line”), their hits (“Casey Jones,” 
“Truckin’ ”) and special interpreta- 
tions of tunes such as Marty Robbins’ 
“El Paso.” But the audience reaction 
is predictable — brainless acceptance 
of everything with loud cheers and 
continual screaming for the songs 
they already know (from having 
heard them at least ninety times pre- 
viously). The energy level is higher 
than ever, but communication lines 
between performer and listener are 
down. 

In short, will success spoil the 
Grateful Dead? For a group as dedi- 
cated and progressive as they are, the 
answer is no. But it certainly has 
ruined their audience, which is even- 
tually bound to affect the group in 
one way or another. 

The New Riders of the Purple 
Sage, a progressive country-pop 
group, haven’t been on the Dead trip 
from the very beginning, but they’re 
certainly along for the ride at the 
moment. They are riding the wave of 
excitement generated by the Dead and 
in doing so, are learning how to gen- 
erate their own brand of enthusiasm. 


Billy Preston 

TROUBADOUR, L.A. — A&M is 
launching a big push on ace organist 
Billy Preston; part of it tied to this 
recent Troubadour appearance. The 
club is primarily a haven for folkies, 
old and new. It would be nice per- 
haps, to be able to say that Preston 
turned it into a church for the six- 
night run, but the fact is, he didn’t. 

What Preston and his band (the — 
are you ready for this? — God Squad) 
did do was bring to the Troubadour a 
sort of chrome and patent leather 
soul, polished up to its glossiest. For 
many, Preston provided the slickest 
show in town. And it’s true, neither 
he nor the band could possibly have 
been accused of hitting a wrong note 
or of making an unsmooth movement 
onstage. 

For others, though, especially those 
of us who know Preston to be one of 
the best musicians in the business, 
there was a feeling of discomfort 
running throughout the set. The sets 
would open with an instrumental ver- 
sion of “Them Changes,” and then go 
into any of several variations. Some 
of the time, he would do a routine 
based on how “Summertime” would 
sound played by musicians ranging 
from Bach to Ray Charles. The set- 
piece was well-done, lord knows, and 
devastatingly accurate (almost too 
much so, when it came to Charles, one 
of Preston’s mentors). 

Preston’s band sounded good; the 
drummer was particularly impressive, 
using his cymbals considerably more 
than the usual “soul” percussionist. 
And there was one of the first uses of 
wah-wah bass I’ve ever encountered. 

Preston certainly has the talent. 
Maybe it was just the wrong room.

Richie Havens 

CHANDLER PAVILION, L.A. — 
Richie Havens brought his own par- 
ticular brand of intense soul-full vo- 
cal art to this Music Center stage 
and, in so doing, was putting his lo- 
cal drawing power on the line. Last 
time, earlier this year, he appeared at 
the Santa Monica Civic. This time, 
with more seats to fill and the poten- 
tially off-putting, that is, rock-bound 
Establishment image of the Dorothy 
Chandler Pavilion, he was obviously 
taking his chances. 

Happy we are to say that his most 
optimistic estimates were surely real- 
ized, for the house was jammed. And 
jammed with an eager, responsive au- 
dience that hung on every note from 
the start. Opening with “From the 
Prison,” Havens drew from his not so 
very mixed bag — “What About Me,” 
“Touch Your Children,” “Handsome 
Johnny,” “Just Like a Woman,” and 
so on, without a break (except to 
replace broken strings) for roughly 
two hours. It was an unrelievedly 
high-pressure session, as any Richie 
Havens act is, but that’s why you’re 
there. Right? To bathe in the sheer 
white heat projected by this very spe- 
cial artist, and to come away from 
any one of his performances somehow 
purged. 

In keeping with the intimate atmo- 
sphere of the occasion (hard enough 
to achieve in this vasty space, in any 
case), Havens elected to get along 
with no more than three back-up mu- 
sicians. They were Paul Williams, 
lead guitar; Eric Oxendine, bass; and 
Emile Latimer, congas. And it was a 
wise decision. They were all Havens 
needed, and they gave him solid, mu- 
sicianly support throughout.

Crowbar 

Kindred 

WHISKY A GO GO, L.A. — Whenev- 
er Crowbar comes to town, which 
isn’t all that often, it’s a cause for 
celebration. The group hasn’t quite 
the reputation they deserve around 
here yet, but it’s good enough to pack 
the Whisky to reasonable fullness on 
a cold Tuesday night when all the 
press and other hangers-on are down 
the street at the Troubadour. 

For Crowbar is a rock and roll 
band, and one of the absolute best 
around. They’re the second Ronnie 
Hawkins backup group to make it. 
The first was the Band. And these 
guys are a lot more exciting. The 
night reviewed they weren’t in top 
shape ; they seemed indecisive between 
numbers. But once they get moving, it 
was with a precision that would put 
most of their competition to shame. 
And it’s nice to know that they ap- 
preciate the idiom enough to do 
“Over the Mountain, Across the Sea” 
reasonably straight. They record for 
Paramount, and their albums are 
worth looking for. 

Kindred is a sort of a Three Dog 
Night. Not surprising; the Warners’ 
group is produced by Chuck Negron. 
All songs performed in the set re- 
viewed were originals ; all were sound- 
ing somewhat like outtakes from the 
first Three Dog Night album. Not 
that there’s anything wrong with all 
that, any more than there’s anything 
wrong with the first Three Dog Night 
album. The group is considerably 
stronger instrumentally than vocally, 
something they seem to realize as 
they go into long solos on organ and 
guitar. Their guitarist, by the way, is 
particularly interesting, being techni- 
cally fluent and quite tasteful.

FOR ALL TO SEE — Tom Jones’ chart-riding ‘‘Live at Caesar’s Palace” dou- 
ble LP package got a new blast of promotion this month in Boston, thanks to 
an outdoor billboard campaign, the brainchild of Len Gordon, branch manager, 
London Records New England, Inc. In what amounted to a virtual “Tom 
Jones” month effort, the Boston billboards were supplemented by a heavy 
schedule of print advertising in local papers along with radio spots. 


Guess Who 
Plan Film 


HOLLYWOOD — RCA’s Guess Who 
is presently planning a full-length 
motion picture designed to star the 
five-man group, according to lead 
singer Burton Cummings. It will 
recount adventures of the band on the 
road but will not follow a documen- 
tary format. 

Also planned by the Guess Who is 
a recording studio in Winnipeg, home 
base. Until it is ready, however, the 
group will continue to use RCA Rec- 
ords’ Chicago facilities. 

Echo Adds To 
Facilities 

NEW YORK — On the heels of intro- 
ducing the new automatic mixdown 
computer unit, “Digilog,” which was 
developed and designed by Echo 
Sound Studios’ president Nick Balsa- 
mo, the studio announced the addition 
of an additional feature known as the 
DBX 187 Noise Reduction System. 
The DBX 187 is said to eliminate tape 
hiss noise without affecting the sound 
reproduction on the tape. Its uses in- 
clude the reprocessing of old tapes 
even on mixdown, in cutting master 
discs and is particularly effective in 
on-location recording. Balsamo advises 
the DBX 187 is totally compatible 
with “Digilog” and its overall compat- 
ibility is simplified to the extent 
where no calibration is necessary with 
any tapes, regardless of their source. 
The DBX 187 was used last week at 
Echo Sound Studios in the recording 
and videotaping of an exciting new 
rock group, Hemlock, and Balsamd 
praised the results of the sessions 
largely due to the effectiveness of the 
DBX 187 Noise Reduction System. 
Balsamo also added that the addition 
of the new system will not affect ei- 
ther studio rates or cutting room 
rates. 


N.Y. Motorman 
Singer-Writer 

NEW YORK — During the past four 
months New York Subway motorman 
Louis Antonio Castro, who drives his 
subway train at night, has been 
signed to two recording contracts and 
has been signed to an exclusive writ- 
er’s contract with a music publishing 
company. 

He was discovered by composer 
Ray Rivera of Bacardi Publications, 
who brought Castro to the attention 
of Sherman Ford, Jr., president of 
Ford Records. He was signed up 
immediately and within a week his 
first record was released. Although it 
got airplay, sales were sparse. 

Ford released him from his agree- 
ment and within two weeks Castro 
signed a long term pact with Univer- 
sal International Records. With a 
tune he penned, UI rushed him into a 
studio and his second record, a song 
called “Welfare,” has just been re- 
leased. 

Meanwhile, Bacardi Publications 
signed Castro to a five year songwrit- 
ers agreement, with tunesmith Rivera 
as exclusive producer for all of Cas- 
tro’s future recording dates. 

Will success spoil Antonio Castro? 
According to him he plans to contin- 
ue his midnight shift with the Transit 
Authority.

‘Tommy’ Set For 
W Coast Opening 

HOLLYWOOD — The first fully-staged 
professional presentation of “Tommy” 
will open in Los Angeles on Feb. 22 
for a scheduled six-week run, an- 
nounced Steve Wolf and Jim Ris- 
miller, operators of Concert Asso- 
ciates, local promoters. 

The production will be directed by 
Joel Rosenzweig, whose earlier ver- 
sion of the “rock opera” as a Uni- 
versity of Southern California drama 
department project netted more than 
$15,000 over a $3,000 cost last April. 
The present production will be based 
on the multi-media concept utilized 
at USC but will be considerably more 
elaborate, with a budget of approxi- 
mately $150,000. 

Equity performers and a union 
stage crew will be utilized for this 
production of “Tommy.” Choreogra- 
pher is Claude Thompson, musical di- 
rector is Denny Randall. Twenty- 
four roles will be cast. 

The script will be identical to the 
Decca album by the Who, with songs 
by members of the group and blues 
singer Sonny Boy Williamson (“Eye- 
sight to the Blind”). The scheduled 48 
performances, with admission prices 
scaled from $4.50 to $7.50, will be 
held in the 1204-seat Aquarius The- 
atre, former site of the Los Angeles 
production of “Hair.” 

Chicago Vegas 
New Years Bash 

HOLLYWOOD — Chicago, in coopera- 
tion with promoter Gary Naseef, have 
set Dec. 31 as the date for a special 
show at the Las Vegas Convention 
Center. 

For a general admission price of 
$12.50, each attendee will be entitled 
to all he can eat and drink, plus the 
music of Chicago, Madura, the Hughes 
Corporation, Batdorf & Rodney and 
David Blue. First groups are man- 
aged by James William Guercio and 
record for Columbia. Other groups 
were contracted by Naseef for the 
event. 

A Chicago spokesman adds that 
“Naturally, New Year’s Eve hats, 
favors and noisemakers will be avail- 
able.” 


Entertainment Bureau, who hope to 
make it Jersey’s answer to the Fill- 
more. 

“We’re trying to give the New 
Jersey concert goers an alternative 
to NYC concerts,” claims John Scher, 
who along with A1 Hayward is co- 
founder of Monarch. “We don’t con- 
sider ourselves in competition with 
Howard Stein, Ron Delsener or any 
city promoters. We feel that there’s 
nothing wrong with presenting the 
same bill as someone else is present- 
ing in New York on the same week- 
end, because we’re drawing a different 
audience. In fact, it would actually be 
advantageous for Monarch to share 
costs with a NYC promoter to bring 
an act into the general area for a 
number of dates.” 

Located at 326 Monroe St., Passaic, 
the Capitol was built in 1939 as a 
vaudeville and music hall. For this, 
reason, Scher maintains, the hall is 
acoustically sound for pop music. 
Monarch has installed a custom sound 
system by Central Sound, a company 
who has worked with the Jefferson 
Airnlane and other groups. 

Monarch is also using Pig Lights 
at their shows, a crew that handled 
stage atmosphere at the Fillmore. The 
security force that worked the Fill- 
more will be on hand as well. 

“I have no qualms about copying 
Bill Graham,” Scher stated. “I think 
he created rock theater and really 
has a feel for concerts. That’s why 
I hired a lot of his old staff.” 

Monarch Entertainment has been 
booking concerts in New Jersey for 
the last three years. They have done 
the Garden State Fair and the Spring 
series of concerts at South Mountain 
Arena in South Orange. Their show 
with the Jefferson Airplane at Wall 
Stadium was the largest concert in 
Jersey history, according to Scher. 

But until now, Monarch hasn’t had 
a stable hall that could always be 
relied on acoustically and technically. 
The show with Humble Pie last 
Thursday sold 5,000 seats over two 
performances. The first show for 
Mountain on Dec. 29 is already sold 
out and tickets have just gone on 
sale for a second show on Dec. 30.

added. There are four price con- 
figurations that range from 99<f to 
$4.98 and run the gamut from the 
seven-inch packages containing die 
cuts of two letters that retail for 
99tf to the $4.98 “Sesame Street Carry 
About Sets” that include five board 
books and records packaged in a 
sturdy carrying case with a plastic 
handle. The original “Sesame Street 
Carry About Set” sales figures now 
total over 350,000 units and the 
original “Sesame Street” LP has now 
passed the 310,000 unit mark. 

The new Columbia Sesame Street 
release, “The Muppet Alphabet Al- 
bum” continues with the fun and 
learning for which Sesame Street is 
known and it features all the Sesame 
Street Muppet favorites, Big Bird, 
Oscar the Grouch, the Cookie Monster, 
Harvey Kneeslapper, and the rest of 
the Muppet family. The music in- 
corporates all forms, from the two- 
step to rock and roll. It has already 
sold over 300,000. 

Hooks & Collins 
Form Lamga 

LOS ANGELES — Duffy Hooks III 
and Larzett Collins have formed 
Lamga Records, an all-blue label.

ment, adding that the first single, 
due in late December, is “Treat Me 
Right” b/w “Original Funky Bell- 
Bottoms” by Ironing Board Sam. 
Lamga will be located at the same 
address as Shur-Tinga: 254 E. 29 St., 
Los Angeles. 



FOR THE GOOD TIMES — Former 
New York NARAS chapter president, 
arranger-producer Milt Okun (right) 
recently returned to Manhattan where 
he received a medallion from current 
chapter president Phil Ramone in ap- 
preciation of his past contributions. 
Okun, currently based in London, de- 
voted much of his return to the States 
to his production of upcoming albums 
by John Denver, Mary Travers and 
Peter Yarrow.

Doors Aim For Inexpensive College Dates 


GAR Unveils 
New Release 

CINCINNATI — General American 
Records hosted a press reception here 
last week to celebrate its upcoming 
quarterly disk release. Having moved 
to Cincinnati from Chicago only last 
February, GAR's theme for the new 
release was local production. 

All product for the new releases 
was taped in Cincinnati studios with 
exclusively local talent. Included in 
the twenty-five tapes presented were 
cuts from GAR’s “Godspell” LP and 
the new Tommy Sears album. Sears 
also performed at the reception. 

Company president James P. Mills 
spoke at the party, claiming that the 
combination of GAR and Cincinnati 
could produce another music center 
like Nashville or Memphis. 


BMI Sues Hotel, Clubs 
Re Licensing Violations 

BEVERLY HILLS— BMI and several 
of its affiliated publishers have in- 
stituted an action for copyright in- 
fringement in the United States Dis- 
trict Court. BMI claims that songs 
licensed through them were per- 
formed by singer Dick Jensen and 
a 12-piece band at the Outrigger 
Hotel in Honolulu, Hawaii. The ac- 
tion was filed against Hawaii Hotels 
Operating Co. Ltd., owner of the 
Outrigger. BMI seeks statutory dam- 
ages for each of the seven publishers 
involved, together with attorney’s 
fees and court costs. The action was 
filed in Hawaii on Dec. 7. 

In separate actions, BMI filed suits 
against owners of two Hollywood 
night clubs, the Classic Cat and the 
Seven Seas. BMI claims that their 
music was used as accompaniment, 
via juke boxes, for live entertainment 
without proper licensing. Those ac- 
tions were settled out-of-court. 


HOLLYWOOD — For their March 
concert tour. Elektra’s Doors will be 
playing chiefly colleges throughout 
the South. 

The move, according to members 
of the group, was for two reasons. 

Axiom Acquires 
New Artists 

LOS ANGELES — Axioms Records 
has continued its expansion by re- 
cently signing Paul Shapiro, Dick 
Glass, Amanda Ambrose, and the 
Key-Out Players. The label plans an 
early spring release for its artists. 

The company is now involved in 
negotiations with several major dis- 
tributors for a national setup. Exec 
vp Ken Gerbino reported that Axi- 
oms is producing a college concert 
tour called “Beautiful Day, Beautiful 
People” with its new acts. 


According to pianist-singer Ray Man- 
zarek, “College audiences are good 
because they’re not going to scream 
and run up on stage. They're really 
there for the music.” 

Guitarist Robby Kreiger mentioned 
that, because college promotions don’t 
have to make the large profits hoped 
for by commercial promoters, they’ll 
be able to keep admission charges 
down. “We think $5.50 top is a very 
reasonable price.” 

Hillside 
Big 3 Folio 

NEW YORK — The Big Three Music 
Corp. will rush out a folio of songs 
by the Hillside Singers to coincide 
with the release of the group’s first 
album on Metro-media called, “I’d 
Like To Teach the World to Sing 
(In Perfect Harmony)”. The folio will 
go on sale within the next couple of 
weeks. 



BELKINS IN FOR CHANGE— The Belkin Bros., Cleveland promoters and 
managers of the James Gang and Jake Jones, have formed with Carl Maduri 
a new independent production company. Belkin-Maduri Production, with the 
seven-man rock group Change as first contractee. Initial product by the group 
will be distributed by Kapp Records. Signing here are Jim Korleski of Change, 
flanked by Jules Belkin (left) and Maduri. 



PREVIEW — Three Dog Night unveils the Florists’ Transworld Delivery Asso- 
ciation (FTD) float it will ride in the Rose Bowl Parade on January 1, when 
they become the first major rock group to travel down Pasadena’s streets on 
New Year’s Day. Occasion will be used to premiere their first new single 
record of 1972. Three Dog Night’s seven members are (standing, from left): 
Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, Floyd Sneed, Cory Wells; (foreground, from 
left) : Jim Greenspoon, Joe Schermie, Michael Allsup.

"Dartin' Raise the Shade" 
is already raising... 

□ Claude King's record sales. 

□ Blood pressures. 

□Chart positions. 

□Air play all over the country. 

□ Eyebrows. 

□ All of the above. 

If you answered the“Darlin’ Raise the 
Shade” mini-quiz with number 6, you're right. 
Because it’s doing everything you’d expect 
from a Claude King single. 

In fact, in the past 2 years, all of his 
singles have gone to the top of the charts. 

Which means there's really no question 
about“Darlin' Raise the Shade.” 

Or Claude King’s talent.

Dolly Parton & Col. Sanders 
Paired In "Success Story” 


Country Artist Of The Week: 

DOLLY PARTON 



A REAL LIVE DOLLY-— In a very brief time Dolly Parton has made her 
mark on the country music scene as one of its top singers and most capable 
songwriters. 


a large family, rich in love and music, Dolly has been singing all of 
her life and writing songs since she was five years old. She first sang on 
record when she was eleven and appeared, for the first time, on the Grand 
Ole Opry when she was twelve. Today, Dolly has been a regular member of 
the Opry since 1968 and is a featured star on the Porter Wagoner syndicated 
IV show and the Porter Wagoner road show. 

Dolly writes many of the songs she sings and “Put It Off Until Tomorrow,” 
which she co-wrote with her uncle, Bill Owens, won the BMI award for Best 
Country Song of 1966. With her records such as “Joshua” always reaching 
high m the trade charts, her current hit record of “Coat of Many Colors” is 
fast climbing into #1 position. 

Bob Ferguson directs Dolly’s recordings for RCA while Top Billing handles 
all bookings.

Brite Star 
Starts ‘Pop Picks’ 

NASHVILLE — Brite Star promo- 
tions of Nashville plans a weekly

plied by record labels and publishing 
houses. The publication will also car- 
ry notes from dee jays and program

A song thousands 
of people have heard 
that no one's really 
heard until now. 

Now, Andy Williams is singing 
“Music From Across the Way!’ In a 
smashing new arrangement and rendi- 
tion of the already-established song. 

So, soon, even more people will 
be hearing Andy's captivating voice 
carrying a solid lyric through one 
of the best melodies of the year. 

And you can imagine the result \ 

once all those people have heard 
“Music From Across the Way." 

Especially if you're good at higher 
mathematics.

CathBox C & W Singles Reviews 


Picks of the Week 


WAYLON JENNINGS (RCA 0615) 

Good Hearted Woman (3:01) (Baron/Nelson, BMI — W. Jennings, W. Nelson) 

Waylon Jennings checks in with a story about a do-right lady and her do- 
wrong lover. Jennings can’t do wrong with this one — the beat and singing won’t 
miss. Flip: “It's All Over Now” (2:34) (Baron, BMI — M. Eddy). 

TOMMY OVERSTREET (Dot 17402) 

Ann (Don’t Go Runnin’) (2:19) (Buzz Cason, ASCAP — B. Cason) 

Tommy Overstreet delivers a strong sound with a tight and commercial arrange- 
ment. This melodic ballad is sure to be hitbound, following the footsteps of Over- 
street’s previous success. Flip: “Within This World Of Mine” (2:56) (Famous, 
ASCAP — -T. Overstreet, D. McLennan). 

KENNY PRICE (RCA 74-0617) 

Super Sideman (3:14) (Acuff-Rose, BMI — B. Bond) 

Kenny Price takes the listener on a superslick cruise through the behind-the- 
scenes world of a hot Nashville backup guitarist. This should chart considerable 
action. Flip: "From Here To There” (3:33) (Tree, BMI — K. Price). 

BILLY PARKER (Decca 32913) 

The Ladder of Success (2:22) (4 Star, BMI — C. Belew, V. Givens) 

Billy Parker should climb the ladder of success with this soft and tender love 
ballad that has a strong commercial sound. Flip: “Looking For The Woman” 
(2:18) (same credits). 

RED LANE (RCA 0616) 

Throw A Rope Around The Wind (2:26) (Tree, BMI — L. Henely) 

Red Lane uses some fine imagery in a song about how hopeless some love 
affairs become. He should lasso a peg on the charts with this tune, which is 
also on the soundtrack of the MGM film, “Going Home”. Flip: "Singeree” (2:05) 
(Tree, BMI — R. Lane). 

HAROLD LEE (Cartwheel A-204) 

Way Down I Think I Love You (2:14) (Kelso Hurston, BMI — B. Milsap) 

This well-worded confession struts along with a very contemporary and pro- 
gressive country arrangement that should carry it right up the survey. It com- 
bines a lot of feel from the folk and rock idioms. Flip: "Outside Of Wichita” 
(1:50) (Wheel, ASCAP— S. K. Dobbins). 

LEONA WILLIAMS (Hickory 1619S) 

The Boys And Lucy Brown (2:31) (Glaser, BMI — R. & L. Williams) 

After scoring with “Miss Hot Pants,” Leona Williams stands a good chance 
to keep the ball rolling with this cute song about promiscuous Lucy Brown. Flip: 
“Country Music In My Soul” (2:46) (Acuff-Rose, BMI— B. Bond). 

ROD ERICKSON (MGM K14342) 

She Taught Me How To Yodel (2:15) (MCA, ASCAP — Roberts, Emerson, Von 
Sciver) 

Rod Erickson makes his MGM bow with a story about yodeling that also in- 
cludes plenty of demonstrations and actually gets into instructions on how to 
yodel. Rod is highly skilled and should capture lots of attention. Flip: “Grandpa 
Tells A Story” (3:25) (Manuscript, Release — R. Erickson). 

JOHN REEVES (Royal American 52) 

When Baby Holds Me (2:38) (Birmingham, BMI — F. McFadden) 

John Reeves delivers a pleasant and well-paced ballad with devoted vocals. 
This cut should get sizeable airplay if given the proper exposure. Flip: “In Case 
Of A Storm” (2:50) (Ma-Ree, ASCAP— M. Francis). 


Best Bets 


CONNIE EATON (Chart 5148) 

Let Me Be The One (3:16) (Chiplin, 
ASCAP — E. Penney, J. Domurad) 
Connie Eaton sings this strong ballad 
with a style somewhere between 
Loretta Lynn and Petula Clark. This 
record could be destined for chart 
slots on both pop and country sur- 
veys. Flip: no info, available. 

DAVID CAPELLE (Peach 506) 
Nothing (2:56) (Peach, SESAG — D. 
Capelle) Backed by the Jimmy Martin 
Quintet, David Capelle forwards a 
pleasant ballad that could warrant 
airplay if given the proper exposure. 
Flip: “Old All Night Truck Stop” 
(3:38) (same credits). 

THE WAKELY’S WITH JIMMY 
WAKELY (Shasta 209) 

Cimarron (1:55) (Peer, BMI— J. 
Bond) Jimmy Wakely retakes this 
Johnny Bond tune that established his 
recording career 31 years ago, this 
time with his two youngsters, Johnny 
and Linda harmonizing. Flip: “Too 
Late” (2:10) (MCA, ASCAP— J. 
Wakely). 


GEORGE LINDSEY (Epic 10821) 
Jesus Jones (2:19) (Press, BMI — R. 
Williams, R. Young) George Lindsey 
sets a convincing narrative mood with 
this talking song about the good Sa- 
maritan who saves a drunk. This song 
stands a good chance of catching on 
if sparked by specific markets. Flip: 
no info, available. 

CRISTY LANE (Extremely Brave 
1214) 

Jesus Is A Soul Man (2:48) (Wilder- 
ness, BMI — Reynolds, Cardwell) Cris- 
ty Lane delivers another version of 
this popular religious number. Her 
arrangement is clean and direct and 
should raise a good deal of country 
listenership. Flip: “A Little Bit Cold- 
er” (2:45) (Tammy Lee, BMI — F. 
Newell) 

JIMMY GENE SMITH (Cartwheel 
205) 

Mama’s Waiting (3:08) (First Edi- 
tion, BMI — K. Rogers, T. Williams) 
Jimmy Gene Smith should score with 
this song written by Kenny Rogers 
and reminiscent of Hag’s “Mama 
Tried.” He uses a very straightfor- 
ward arrangement to back his under- 
stated vocals. Flip: “Don’t Let Go”

tion areas. The below' ground area 
houses the engineering and lounge

manager of KUSN, Don Register is

turned out to be the recent meeting 
grounds for a fan of Epic’s Welton 
Lane! The popular country singer 
was on his w r ay to do a show at 
Kentucky’s Meade County High 
School, when the tire “tired out”. 
Going to a nearby house to use the 
phone, Welton soon found he was in 
the company of an avid fan, and he 
says, “The lady was so nice, I believe 
she’d have changed the tire if w'e’d 
have asked!” . . . That genial gentle- 
man who leads the Nashville Brass, 
Danny Davis, spent several hours in 
the RCA studios recently producing a 
session on The Blackwood Brothers. 
Davis is also credited with cutting 
recent spots for this year’s national 
March of Dimes Campaign . . . Song- 
stress, Diana Trask, has been booked 
for the entii'e month of January to do 
a series of shows with Morie Amster- 
dam. Diana, a Dot artist, is scheduled 
to cover 11 states, delivering a total 
of 23 concerts.

‘Desiderata’ 

Goes Foreign 

NEW YORK — Warner Bros. Rec- 
ords has specially prepared promo 
copies of the Les Crane “Desiderata” 
recitation for use on Spanish lan- 
guage radio stations. The single (in 
the original English version) has 
been high on the charts for many 
weeks and Warner Bros, director of 
sales Ed Rosenblatt said that War- 
ners is prepared to release a Spanish 
consumer version if public acceptance 
warrants. Rosenblatt pointed out that 
Randy Newman’s current album, 
“Randy Newman Live,” was original- 
ly released only on a promo basis and 
has gone on to become Newman’s 
best selling Reprise album. 

Local Versions 

Warner Bros, manager of foreign 
licensees Tom Ruffino added that 
many of Warner’s licensees are issu- 
ing versions of Desiderata in their 
own language, also because of the 
extremely strong response afforded 
the Crane single and album. In these 
foreign markets Warner Bros, has en- 
couraged the licensee to produce its 
own version using native talent. At 
this date, “Desiderata” has been re- 
leased by Warner Bros, licensees in 
Holland, Germany, Japan and South 
Africa. In South Africa, the single 
has been in the top ten for a month 
and has been registered gold, reflect- 
ing sales in excess of 25,000 copies, 
which is exceptional in South Africa. 
In Canada, John Pozzer is producing 
a French version of “Desiderata” for 
release to Canada’s French speaking 
population and for future use in 
France, Luxembourg and Belgium. 

The “Desiderata” text dates back to 
a short poem copyrighted in 1906 by 
Max Ehrmann. In its present form 
“Desiderata” was first copyrighted 
under the title “Go Placidly Amid The 
Noise and The Haste,” by Indiana 
Publishing Company in 1927. The 
copyright was renewed in 1946 by 
Bertha K. Ehrmann, the poet’s wife.

Cash Box — December 25, 1971 


Some people 
don’t join ASCAP because 

they think they 
can’t get in. 

We don’t know whether to 

be flattered or 
annoyed. 


Somewhere along the 
line, word got out that ASCAP 
was the Phi Beta Kappa of the music indus- 
try. And the only way to become a member 
was to be elected for outstanding achievement. 

A look at our list of members didn’t do 
anything to discourage it: Irving Berlin, Rich- 
ard Rodgers, Burt Bacharach, Bob Dylan. (You 
get the idea.) 

While we’re flattered that many writ- 
ers have this view of us, we’re happy to admit 
there isn’t a shred of truth in it. And if almost 
all the outstanding writers in the business 
seem to belong to ASCAP, there’s a good 
reason. 

Royalties. 

ASCAP collects more royalties for its 
members. 

You see, ASCAP is a performing rights 
society owned by its members— writers and 
publishers of music. As a result they’re able to 
look out for their interests better than some- 
one who isn’t a writer or publisher. They have 
to account to no one but themselves. 

So who do you have to be to join 
ASCAP? 

Simple. 


Any composer or author of a 
copyrighted musical compo- 
sition who shall have had at least one work of 
his composition or writing regularly published 
or commercially recorded is eligible. 

Any composer or author of a copy- 
righted musical composition who is not found 
to be eligible to membership in the participating 
class may be elected as an associate member. 

Any person, firm, corporation or part- 
nership actively engaged in the music publish- 
ing business whose musical publications have 
been used or distributed on a commercial 
scale, and who assumes the financial risk in- 
volved in the normal publications of musical 
works is eligible. 

So if you’re thinking of joining a per- 
forming rights organization, or have already 
joined one and are sorry it wasn’t ASCAP, get 
in touch with Dave Combs in New York at 
(212) 595-3050. Or Herb Gottlieb in Los 
Angeles at (213) 466-7681. Or Ed Shea in 
Nashville at (615) 244-3936. 

If the line’s busy, hang up and call again. 
After all, there are 30,000 of you and 


only three 
of them.

Cash Box — December 25, 1971 



Somewhere in the world, 
they’re waiting for you. 



F or most records there’s an 
enthusiastic audience somewhere. 

The trick is to find them. 

And that’s what CBS Inter- 
national does better than any other 
recording organization. 

Every week, you’ll find CBS 
artists you’ve probably never 


heard of, taking one place or another 
by storm. 

We’ve broken American artists 
overseas before they hit in the States. 

We helped a singer from France 
sell a million copies of his latest record 
in Germany. 

We helped an English group hit 


big in Argentina, a Canadian artist 
top the charts in Japan and on and on. 

And since we have complete 
recording, pressing, packaging, pro- 
motion and publishing facilities all 
over the world, we can make you 
important in places that you haven’t 
even heard of yet. 


Think big.We do.

Cash Box — December 25, 1971 


The Recording Studio Scene In Great Britain 


Recording studios in Britain have 
come into their own during 1971. This 
has been brought about by the emer- 
gence, over the past few years, of the 
independent producer and the need 
for varied studio facilities. Perhaps 
The Beatles did more to publicise 
studios in general and EMI in partic- 
ular with their “Addey Road” album. 
Nowadays, it is commonplace for the 
studio in which a performance is re- 
corded to the credited along with the 
artiste and producer. Many new studi- 
os have opened including Audio In- 
ternational which came about in June 
of this year by Radio Luxembourg 
and Management Agency & Music 
joining forces and producing one of 
Britain’s most modern recording 
studios. Under the guidance of Rich- 
ard Millard many top artistes have 
recorded there including Petula 
Clark, Engelbert Humperdinck, Sacha 
Distel, Frank Pourcel, Gilbert O’Sul- 
livan etc. The studio is also often 
utilised by the MAM Organisation’s 
artistes as well as for hire. Positioned 
in Rodmarten Street, near to the fo-

cal points of London’s music industry 
it is one of the most convenient studi- 
os to use owing to the easy parking 
facilities. It is pleasantly decorated in 
modem style complete with air condi- 
tioning in the control room. 

In 1965 Vic Keary, Emil Shalit and 
Allan Crawford set up a publishing 
company called Maximum Music. 
Four years later in August of 1969 
they decided to open a recording 
studio. Named Chalk Farm Studios 
this has probably been one of the 
most successful studios for the re- 
cording of mainly West Indian and 
raggae music. Their first chart success 
was Nicky Thomas with “Love of the 
Common People” which opened the 
way for such artistes as Horace Faith 
“Black Pearl”; Bob and Marcia “Pied 
Piper” and “Young, Gifted and 
Black”; Dave and Ansil Collins “Mon- 
key Spanner” and “Double Barrell”; 
Greyhound “Black and White” and 
The Pioneers “Let Your Yeah Be 
Yeah” — all issued on the Trojan label. 
Indie producer Des Champ makes 
constant use of the Chalk Farm 
studio along with such artistes as 
Bruce Chanell, The Rocking Berries, 
Vanity Fair etc. 

The Decca Studio can boast the 
early Bing Crosby recordings and 
the famous “Harry Lime Theme” 
by Anton Kras but enough of the 
stars of yesteryear. The talents of 
such top artists as Tom Jones, Engel- 
bert Humperdinck, Marmalade, Moody 
Blues, Brotherhood of Man, White 
Plains etc. have all been recorded at 
the Broadhurst Gardens Studio. The 
complex comprises four studios, one 
of which is in Tollington Park Studio 
and all are due to be re-equipped in 
1972. The Tollington Park studio has 
a Neve 24-channel, 16 track mixer 
fully rigged with Dolby units while 
Broadhurst Gardens has 8 track ma- 
chines with Decca consoles and Dolby 
units. 

Prior to the opening of their new 
studio DJM (an offshoot of Dick 
James Music) relied on a small 4 
track demo studio but in May 1970 
the time came to open a fully fledged

8 track recording studio. The studio is 
probably one of the best in London 
for the recording of groups lending 
itself to this particular type of sound. 
It is centrally positioned in their 
James House headquarters in New 
Oxford Street. Fitted with Studer and 
Ampex tape machines it has a com- 
prehensive disk cutting outfit for 
demos or mono masters consisting of 
scully cutting lathes. Many DJM ar- 
tistes including Hookfoot, Nigel Ols- 
son, Lois Lane, Edward Woodward, 
Vanity Fair and The Troggs have all 
recorded at DJM. 

Many of Britain’s top entertainers 
have recorded at the EMI studios 
since the opening in 1930. In the early 
days Yehudi Menuhin at the tender 
age of 16 recorded Elgar’s Violin 
Concerto with Sir Edward conducting. 
Other famous personalities include 
Grade Fields, Sir Thomas Beecham, 


Fats Waller, Jack Hilton, Harry Roy 
to name but a few. Today’s stars are 
Cliff Richard, Cilia Black and, of 
course, The Beatles who took the 
name of EMI’s Abbey Road studios 
for the title of their album. The studi- 
os are housed in the residential area 
of St. John’s Wood the frontage of 
which looks like an ordinary house 
because EMI are not allowed to de- 
stroy the residential nature of the 
tree lined road. However, once over 
the threshold the enormous premises 
are revealed. There are three studios, 
two remix rooms and six cutting 
rooms complete with 16 track facili- 
ties and Dolby units. Charges are 
from £30 for 8 track and £35 for 16 
track. Recent chart successes include 
“Tap Turns On The Water” by CCS, 
“Look Around” by Vince Hill; “Ernie” 
by Benny Hill and “Banks of the 
Ohio” by Olivia Newton- John, etc.

Surely 1971 was the year in which 
developed the strongest economical 
crisis that afflicted Italy since the end 
of the 2nd World War. And as time 
goes by it seems that the country’s 
condition is always getting worse be- 
cause of the constantly growing 
unemployment, of the always more 
frequent strikes and of the continuous 
capital escape abroad. 

Useless to say that such a situation 
has negatively affected also the rec- 
ord and music Industry, which has 
suffered a substantial contraction in 
sales and in performing and mechani- 
cal fees. 

Undoubtedly, record companies and 
the music publishers tried to revive 
their own market, but the fact that 
several trials were made without 
coordination, the benefits were spora- 
dic. Now the small companies are al- 
most exhausted and it will be easy to 
predict that only those few companies 
having European and/or world-wide 
dimension will survive this unhappy 
period. 

But let us return to the point. As in 
the past, the musical year opened in 
January with the final TV show of 
the national song lottery “Canzonissi- 
ma”. Massimo Ranieri (CBS) got the 
first prize with a song entitled “Ven- 
t’anni”, while the still unknown owner 
of the ticket coupled with that title 
won the respectable sum of 150 mil- 
lion lire. Owing to this performance, 
Massimo Ranieri acquired the right to 
represent Italy to the Eurovision 
Song Contest, where he sang “L’a- 
more e un attimo.” 

February was marked by the many 
and serious quarrels among record 
companies and music publishers, on 
one hand, and the San Remo Fes- 
tival’s Organizers, on the other. Then, 
after a long series of reciprocal char- 
ges, the Festival took place at the end 
of the month, but with the desertion 
of four important record companies. 


The first prize was awarded to the 
title “II curoe e uno zingaro,” sung 
by Nada and Nicola Di Bari, both on 
RCA but the Italian audience had the 
chance to meet an artist like Jose 
Feliciano, who got the second place 
with the title “Che Sara”. The most 
important event in March surely was 
the effective assumption on the part 
of S.I.A.E. (Italian Performing 
Rights Society) of the direct manage- 
ment of the Mechanical Right that, 
until then, had been committed to a 
private society: SEDRIM. 

Then, the San Remo Festival ended, 
everybody started working hard to 
prepare songs and artists for “Un 
disco per l’estate” (One record for 
Summer), a further radio song con- 
test that has the power to condition 
the whole activity of the music and 
record people during the Spring- 
Summer period. “Era il tempo more”, 
a tune sung by Mino Reitano (Duri- 
um), was appointed “the record for 
1971 Summer.” 

But Spring and Summer were prin- 
cipally characterized by the explosion 
of Lucio Battisti, who established 
himself not only as the most brilliant 
Italian songwriter with a lot of big 
hits (the biggest of which was “Pen- 
sieri e Parole”), but also as a strong 
record seller. 

In this period the Italian market 
made acquaintance with such artists 
as Laurent (Sing-Sing Barbara), 
Francis Lai (Love story), Neil Dia- 
mond I am ... I said), Demis (We 
shall dance), Ocean (Put your hand in 
the hand), Middle of the road 
(Tweedle dee, tweedle dum), Pop 
Tops (Mamy blue), Pooh (Tanta 
voglia di lei), Formula 3 (Eppur mi 
sono scordato di te), I Nuovi Angeli 
(Dinna Felicita) and the local Hits 
Charts gave a further confirmation 
of the great popularity enjoyed here 
by Mina (Amor mio), Joan Baez (La

JAPAN IN REVIEW— 1971 


JANUARY 

Warner Bros.-Pioneer Records dis- 
closed its first release and its record- 
ing artists: First single “Memai” by 
Mari Henmi, one of the biggest hits 
in Japan for this year, was released 
on Jan. 4. 

Nippon Victor president Mr. Ki- 
tano addressed at its annual Hit 
Awards Presentations. In his address 
he said that the company aims at a 
sales target of 25 billion yen, or 20% 
over the previous year, for this year. 
At the RCA Hit Award Presentations, 
held concurrently, NBC manager in 
Far East Mr. Rich said, while total 
sales of recording industry of Japan 
for last year was about 10% over the 
previous year, RCA marked the sales 
which were 40% over the previous 
year. 

Yutaka Andou, president of the 
Japan Record Association, has re- 
ported finances of recording industry 
for 1970. According his announce- 
ment, total production of records for 
1970 was 130 million copies, 66 billion 
yen, representing a 10% over the 
previous year, below recent average 
of a 30% over. One of the reasons 
of this poor result was decrease of

hand, sales of LPs showed steady 
increases. He concluded his announce-

ognized that the industry has got 
into the hard era.

Gianni Morandi (Capriccio), Patty 
Pravo (Tutt’al piu).

well as possible the actual and future 
dark times, the most successful record 
companies reinforced their own sel- 
ling power iby acquiring new artists 
and new catalogs such as, for in- 
stance, E.M.I. Italiana, which got Lit- 
tle Tony (artist), Daybreak Records, 
Little Record and MRC-Southem;

COIN MACHINE NEWS 


MERRY 

CHRISTMAS 

and 

Best Wishes 
for the 
NEW YEAR 



1971 In Review 


The year 1971 for the music and I 
amusement machine business was 
more remarkable for what didn’t hap- 
pen rather than for what did. Some 
call it “Recession-II”; others prefer to 
look back at the closing twelve 
months with grateful thanks that 
they weathered the storm. The 
“storm” they referred to, of course, 
was a continuation of the soft collec- 
tions and equipment sales which 
originally hit the trade in 1970. 

The average jukebox and games 
operator didn’t really see himself as 
being directly affected by any nation- 
al economic trend. He rather felt his 
own peculiar industry was going 
through one of its own peculiar cy- 
cles and that something eventually 
would happen, quite apart from him- 
self, to put all the pieces (and the 
collection pile) back the way they 
were. 

But 1971 wasn’t a cycle just for this 
business alone. It had profound 
effects on every industry in the na- 
tion, as well as in many parts of the 
world where operators from other 
lands depend upon the American 
trade for the verve, leadership and 
manufacturing expertise to guide 
their own ventures and policies. But 
the unusual thing for the American 
trade this closing year was that a 
recession existed at the very same 
time as a corporate consolidation or 
routes, dealerships and other inter- 
ests. 

Routes Swap Hands; 
Distributors Merge 

Many well-established route opera- 
tors surprised their colleagues by sell- 
ing out to other routes for cash (and 
sometimes stock) almost with the air 
that the business was passe’ anyway 
so why not cash in the chips. Other 
operators, frustrated in their search 
for new locations, turned their atten- 
tion to buying other routes. 

Routes from Long Island to San 
Diego swapped hands during 1971, 
and not always into the hands of 
other juke operators. Big bucks were 
offered and snapped up. Some old 
timers, on the other hand, turned 
down many a deal for fear, it seemed, 
of losing their very identities (and of 
a retirement where the only challenge 
lie in how close you could live to 
Collins Ave., Miami Beach). 

By the way our equipment distribu- 
tors consolidated with factories dur- 
ing the year, it seemed the so-called 
“pure distributor” was becoming so 
rare his face deserved to be on Mt. 
Rushmore. The most spectacular move 
of any dealer during ’71 was the sale 
of Bilotta Enterprises, Inc. of New 
York State to Rowe International’s 
Trimount Automatic Sales (Boston). 
The new firm called itself Trimount- 
Bilotta. Now at the end of ’71, almost 
as many distributorships are owned 
outright by the jukebox factories as 
there are independents around, even 
those backed up by a big route oper- 
ation. 

Factory-Distribs- 
A New Reality 

With the exception of Rock-Ola, the 
big American jukebox factories 
moved key personnel into managerial 
positions over factory-owned dis- 


tribution networks. The factory- 
dealership, once looked upon as a 
novelty, is now so much in vogue that 
a whole new selling science has built 
up at the juke factories to meet the 
new format. Rock-Ola, still selling 
only through independent distribu- 
tors, made several significant changes 
in its dealers during the year, includ- 
ing their granting the line to Bob 
Jones of Robert Jones International, 
the year’s most noteworthy new dis- 
tributor, boasting several important 
games lines and brand new headquar- 
ters in Dedham, Mass. 

For about the first time in the his- 
tory of this industry, operating talent 
accomplished more than longevity in 
the business. Talent in searching out 
and securing new locations. Talent to 
purchase the right machine for the 
right location with the right play- 
price. Talent in rendering locations 
that extra special service courtesy, or 
as Johnny Bilotta often called it, “the 
sizzle on the steak.” 

Collections Static; 
Ops On the Offense 

While average collections did not 
slip any further down than the 1970 
averages, they didn’t bounce back 
toward the industry’s prosperity of 
the ’60’s either and many operators 
became impatient with the status quo 
and turned more aggressive and en- 
terprising in their attempt to move 
profits back “where they belong.” The 



best phrase to describe the new ap- 
proach is “extra effort” .... meaning 
many operators didn’t take the first, 
second or even the third “no” from 
locations they were soliciting.' They 
devised all kinds of ways to entice the 
location’s interest. Some prepared 
beautiful sales presentations; others 
scouted out financially troubled res- 
taurants and talked the management 
into becoming neighborhood-styled 
taverns, complete with juke and 
games. 

Reaching Out To 
The New Markets 

Chain stores and shopping centers 
got to know lots more music and 
games operators this year than ever 
before. Not that our people haven’t 
wanted these extra stops; they just 
didn’t apply the pressure or the 
thought power until soft collections j 
forced them to get back on the street 
hammering. 

Now, we don’t mean to slight those

really progressive operating compan- 
ies who’ve been hitting the off street 
stops all along. We just mean to com- 
pliment the rank and file tradester for 
joining in. 

The operator’s equipment buying 
patterns ran toward the special novel- 
ty machine in the first part of the 
year and back toward the staple pins, 
shuffles etc. toward the latter. The 
staple games themselves showed up 
on more and more locations set at 
2-25^ play — another reaction to the 
recession but also a healthy sign and 
clear direction for the future. 

New MOA Prexy 
Trucano Slates 
Regional Meets 

On the association level, South Da- 
kota’s John Trucano (Black Hills 
Novelty Co.) was sworn in as MOA’s 
new president. Trucano came to the 
office with a new program in his 
pocket — regional business seminars 
for operators. The first four of these 
two-day sessions, all under the direc- 
tion of Notre Dame University, will 
be held in early 1972 in Indiana, 
Georgia, Nevada and New York. They 
will deal with modern techniques for 
solving old problems plaguing opera- 
tors and are certain to become a 
mainstay among the national associa- 
tion’s services. 

MOA’s traditional posture as 
watchdog on the Federal Copyright 
Revision wasn’t tested during 1971 to 
any great extent, since the bill re- 
mained bogged down in the Senate 
Judiciary Committee thanks largely 
to additional interest groups trying 
to get in on the gravy at the eleventh 
hour. The association still sticks by 
its $8 per box figure and if and when 
the issue comes to a head in ’72, MOA 
will be there with boxing gloves on. 

MOA’s 1971 Convention and Ex- 
position in Chicago this past October 
scored another in its recent string of 
successes .... both in operator atten- 
dance and in the quality of the 
equipment on display. Outgoing pres- 
ident Les Montooth had firmly es- 
tablished his specialized accounting 
and bookkeeping service for opera- 
tors before he stepped down, and this 
again should be a permanent MOA 
service based on member acceptance. 

Significant corporate moves on the 
factory level during 1971 included the 
appointment of Williams Electronics 
patriarch Sam Stern to the presidency 
of Seeburg (its parent company). 
Seeburg itself made a significant 
move itself during ’71 when its chair- 
man Lou Nicastro attempted to plant 
it once more on its own footing, away 
from the corporate conglomerate 
Commonwealth United. 

Corporate Moves On 
The Factory Level 

Jack Gordon’s Cameron Musical In- 
dustries Ltd. (OTC) ceased the import 
of their Cameron jukebox and entered 
into the operating business by buying 
Bordy Music of San Diego, Calif. An- 
other coin industry company now 
boasting the “OTC” after its corpo- 
rate name is Allied Leisure Industries 
of Florida, going public in November 
with shares going out at $6 per. 

Bally Manufacturing Corp., itself 
still relatively young as a public com- 
pany, posted startling sales gains 
during the first nine months of ’71 to 


the tune of over $29 million; expected 
to slam well over the 1970 mark of 
$33.5 million by year’s end. Firm is- 
sued a 5c per share dividend to stock- 
holders also at year’s end. And the 
giant company continued to expand 
its world wide interests with the 
opening of Bally France SA early in 
the year. 

Anniversaries And 
Reorganizations 

D. Gottlieb & Co., after 30 years at 
its legendary N. Kostner Ave. factory 
in Chicago, made the move to its 
enormous new North Lake complex in 
early 1971. The firm followed up the 
physical move with the corporate ap- 
pointment of Judd Weinberg to its 
presidency. 

Chicago Dynamic Industries, manu- 
facturers of the industry’s “Cinderella 
machine” ‘Speedway’, celebrated its 
40th year in the industry in ’71. 
ChiCoin’s veteran sales director Mort 
Secore stepped down to take a sabati- 
cal and Chuck Arnold came in as that 
firm’s new marketing manager. (See 
separate story this issue on ChiCoin.) 

In a financial reorganization of 
Nutting Industries Ltd. of Milwaukee, 
founder David Nutting formed Mil- 
waukee Coin Industries and continued 
manufacturing their Red Baron target 
game. 

Export Market’s 
Ups and Downs 

The machine export market had its 
ups and downs during 1971. The Ups 
were a few new firms coming into 
that area of the business: Morris 
Nahum formed AMICO International, 
and Barry Feinblatt formed United 
Amusement, Inc. as a subsidiary of 
United Billiards. The chief Down was 
a lengthy dockers strike that forced 
the exporters to find additional (and 
more expensive) ways to get their 
wares overseas. 

Most notable move in the foreign 
market itself was the opening up of 
Europe to the coin table. Through 
such European leaders as Alfred Ad- 
icks and Walter Grinke, the pool table 
at last began to move onto locations 
with a gusto. And while many of the 
tables were of European origin, the 
American-made table (often complete 
with slate already in cabinet) took a 
lion share of the market and became 
a viable export commodity for the 
States. Another significant event was 
SEGA’s announced entry into flipper 
manufacturing, to begin sometime in 
1972. Games will be sold domestically 
at first. 

The foreign industry, however, did 
slump into an unusual equipment 
buying slack during the latter part of 
the year. Another cycle, many hoped, 
but nevertheless, the Europeans in 
particular became very choosey in 
machine buying, with large invento- 
ries of used staples and big novelties 
available at dealerships. 

Fighting Today For 
A Better Tomorrow 

For tradesters at home and abroad, 
the universal hope is for a profitably- 
brighter day to dawn in the coming 
year by maintaining that which it 
already has, and by devoting energy 
toward bringing the better day 
closer. A happy new year to one and 
all.

Boca Raton, Florida, and was shown 
publicly to the Music Operators of 
America at the Sherman House last 
October. 

The Model 449 has every feature 
of the 160 selection companion pho- 
nograph, according to Doris, with the 
exception that “Two Plays Two 
Bits” is an optional accessory. 

Doris described the Model 449 as 


And among other new features is 
the “COMPUTER PLAY STATUS 
INDICATOR” which gives the cus- 
tomer complete information on the 
progress of his selection and makes 
the 449 easier and more fun to play. 

The “ROCK POWER AMPLIFI- 
CATION SWITCH”, Doris says, “is 
a real boom to locations which need 
ultra-loud music and by the mere 
flip of a switch double power is fed 
to auxiliary and machine speakers.” 

Also incorporated into the 449 is 
the same “COMPUTE-A-FLASH” 
Record Now Playing Indicator from 
the 448. “This Record Now Playing 
Indicator offers more excitement and 
eye appeal to the customer for 
greater enjoyment and larger take,” 
Doris said. 

These phonographs are now in dis- 
play at all Rock-Ola distributors.

A good example of grass-roots pub- 
lic relations for our industry comes 
from Green Bay, Wisconsin where 
Empire Distributing’s'' manager, Bob 
Rondeau and Bob Greatens, partner 
in Hallada Coin, spent an entire Sat- 
urday with Boy Scout Troop No. 42 
picking up paper to help the scouts 
get enough money to continue their 
Christmas projects (see photo above). 

Both Greatens and Rondeau, who 
are active MOA members, believe 
that the best public relations program 
for our industry is sincere civic in- 
volvement and both are following 
MOA’s public relations programs.

Chicago Dynamic Industries 


Marks 40th Anniversary 


In Amusement Manufacture 


Chicago Dynamic Industries, Inc., 
one of the pioneer firms in the manu- 
facture of coin-operated amusement 
machines, celebrated its 40th anniver- 
sary this year. 

In reminiscing over the past four 
decades, through the period when an 
operator could purchase a machine 
for around $29.50 (even as low as 
$9.90 in some instances), and subse- 
quently pay for it with two to three 
weeks collections, Samuel Gensburg, 
co-founder of the firm, recalled some 
of the very first machines the compa- 
ny manufactured. 

“The ‘Knickerbocker’ was the first 
game we produced back in 1934. In 
1935, we simultaineously introduced 
five cent play and the electric game 
with a machine called ‘Beamlight’ 



Sam Wolberg Avron Gensburg 

Co-Founder Vice President 



Chuck Arnold Bob Sherwood 

Sales Manager Export Mgr. 


which had eight electric batteries and 
twelve light bulbs,” he said. “One of 
our earliest baseball games was a 
unit called ‘Base Hit’, released in 
1935. There were many, many others. 
‘Kilroy’ enjoyed the largest run of 
any game made back in 1946, with 
12,500 produced and sold.” 

Chicago Dynamic Industries was 
one of the early manufacturers of 
bowling games and the first company 
to make a multiple player game. 

In noting the changes that have 
taken place in the industry through 
the years, Samuel Wolberg, also a 
founder of the company, said: “Not 
only has the amusement machine tak- 
en on a more sophisticated form both 
structurely and mechanically, but the 
market for equipment has expanded 
into world wide proportions. With the 
opening up of more and more over- 
seas markets, the coin machine busi- 
ness is no longer a strictly -American 
business confined exclusively to the 
U.S. shores.” 

During World War II, Chicago Dy- 
namic Industries discontinued the 
manufacture of amusement machines 
to devote full scale production to the 
war effort. The company was singled 
out, at that time, for the coveted Ar- 
my-Navy “E” Award, which is a trea- 
sured possession to this day. 

The Chicago Dynamic Industries 
plant at 1725 W. Diversey in Chicago, 
occupies more than 110,000 sq. ft. of 
space. The company recently pur- 
chased additional property which will 
ultimately enlarge the complex by 
about 44,000 sq. ft. The firm employs 
between 600 and 700 people. Several 
present employees have been with the 
company since its early beginnings in 
the 1930’s. 

“Expansion has been the key word 
here,” said Avron Gensburg, a vice 
president. “In the past 37 years we 
have enlarged our space on four sep- 
arate occasions and are still expand- 
ing! We recently expanded our indus- 
trial engineering department and have

our own print shop on the premises. 
We make our own tools, dies and 
manufacture most of the parts for the 
games we produce.” 

Avron recently returned from a trip 
around the world during which he 
visited the various coin machine mar- 
kets. “The development of our Euro- 
pean interests has always been a 
prime concern to us,” he said, “and, 
since our export business is now 
world wide and accounts for a sub- 
stantial percentage of our total vol- 
ume, we are also investigating the 
business possibilities in other parts of 
the world such as Asia, Africa and 
South America. Our very capable di- 
rect of European sales, Karl Goet- 
ting, who is based in our newly- 
enlarged German office, is currently 
traveling through Africa. Export 


manager Bob Sherwood, who joined 
our staff about a year and a half ago, 
has made several overseas trips this 
past year, and will be on hand, in our 
exhibit, at the A.T.E. show in London 
early next year.” 

No story about Chicago Dynamic 
Industries would be complete without 
mention of a rather historic piece of 
equipment called ‘Speedway’ which 
enjoyed a run of 9,000 and is “still 
earning big money on location,” ac- 
cording to sales manager Chuck Ar- 
nold. 

The amusement industry congratu- 
lates its “ChiCoin” on its hallmark 
40th anniversary as a mainstay of the 
trade, and for the consistent output 
of first rate equipment which provide 
the mainstay of routes and arcades 
the world over.

Pierre Tours N.E. 

To Talk Soccer 

NEW YORK — Rene Pierre, president 
of Ets. Rene Pierre (French coin 
games manufacturer) recently com- 
pleted an eight-day tour of Eastern 
states on behalf of his table soccer 
and billiard equipment. Pierre, ac- 
companied by his U-S. importer 
Charles Steindecker (Chas. Raymond 
& Co.), visited distributors, operators 
and locations where his “Competition 
’71” soccer table is installed, in New 
York, Connecticut, Ohio, Kentucky 
and Virginia. 

While in Virginia, he had occasion 
to visit with Peabody’s Inc. their 
coin distributor for that State, and 
learned that a highly successful table 
soccer tournament was recently com- 
pleted there, and that soccer as a 
coin game is on the popularity in- 
crease. (Peabody’s is exclusive dis- 
tributor for Pierre’s products in Va.; 
they maintain offices in Virginia 
Beach). 

While in Connecticut Pierre visited 
with representatives of North Ameri- 
can Recreation Convertibles Inc. of 
Westport . . . his distributor for their 
non-coin line of games. 

Ets. Rene Pierre maintains manu- 
facturing facilities in the French 
cities of Ranchot and Chalon.

EASTERN FLASHES 


HAPPY HOLIDAY — We at Cash Box would like to take this opportunity to 
express our sincerest wishes to all for a happy and prosperous 1972. Meyer 
Parkoff, president of Atlantic New York Corporation (Seeburg), made some ob- 
servations regarding recent and past developments as they relate to games and 
music and some of the comments are summed up thusly, “The public has most 
assuredly accepted the innovative play features and futuristic designs the games 
manufacturers have marketed over the recent past, and are deserving of compli- 
ments for forward looking approaches. The operator is to be congratulated also 
for buying and placing these games (especially the 2/250 novelty target games). 
These enterprising operators have opened new coin-operated areas. Locations 
that had heretofore been overlooked are now converted to coin-operated amuse- 
ment locations. The game manufacturer has been progressive; but the danger 
of oversaturation looms. While, Meyer feels, there are many aspects in the 
area of music that have been explored in concepts and designs, the need for 
more dramatic change is at hand. The music operator is partly responsible for 
the slow pace. Far too often, Meyer explains, the operator is not taking advan- 
tage of those devices that have been specifically designed for the benefit and 
convenience of the music operator. As an example, most Juke manufacturers 
have optional features such as an income computer unit. The units furnish ac- 
curate information as to the amount of monies inserted into the machines. These 
units relieve the route man of having to sit around the location and count coin. 
Time saving. In summing up and expressing his best to all, Meyer says, to 
remain a viable and healthy music industry, all concerned should try to con- 
tinually develop and utilize new ideas. 


Harold Kaufman, president of Musical Distributors Corp., (Wurlitzer) recently 
returned from a Puerto Rican vacation, is feeling rested, and Harold who has 
helped develop many trends in the industry through his visionary thought and, 
more often than not, has pre-tested and proved the worth of many games and 
jukes, also expresses his faith and continued support of the industry and, Harold 
says, my support will go on. Progressive and enterprising people are needed and 
wanted in this industry, states Harold . . . Lou Wolberg (Runyon Sales), (Rowe- 
AMI) has gained the reputation of being a vital force in the music and games 
industry and is noted for his many wise and sage suggestions; always helpful 
to all who have been in contact with him. Lou has always maintained an optimis- 
tic attitude toward the industry and is looking forward to a prosperous 1972. 
And, says Lou, that means everyone. 


All the men and personnel at A-l Record Sales have extended their best wishes; 
and Otto Wilkinson of A-l says, in reflecting upon events over the past year, the 
length of the record, for the jukebox programmer and for the customer, has really 
not been a significant factor. One of the reasons, Otto points out, is that many 
of the Juke machines are programmed for 2/250 play and the customer will 
play and wants hit record product, regardless of the length of a particular rec- 
ord. Currently, Don McLean’s ‘American Pie’ on the UA label is moving as fast 
as that old traditional pie. In the soul structure, ‘Clean-Up Woman’ is an offer- 
ing by Betty Wright on Alston (Dist. Atlantic) and is shaping up as a top Juke- 
Box attraction. And, Al Greene ‘Let’s Stay Together’ on the Hi Label (Dist: Lon- 
don) seems to be an appropriate comment for the coming year. Needless to 
say, Otto expresses best wishes to all. 


Al D’lnzillo general manager at Albert Simon, Inc. (Rock-Ola) reports that many 
significant events have occurred throughout the year, such as the wage-price 
freeze. Economic conditions certainly could go on a better upward course. Music 
and games factories will undoubtedly continue to expand and grow, and all of us 
at Albert Simon are looking forward to a prosperous ’72. 

Jn making our closing remarks on the past year, we again also wish to ex- 
press our thank you to all of our readers and contributors who have helped 
make this a most pleasant year. We welcome all criticism, and of course, all 
the little noteworthy items that have been graciously contributed, in helping to 
make this column as newsworthy as possible. 

We are also looking forward to all the new product activity that will be forth- 
coming from the manufacturers in the near future. 

In an article of the December 16 Village Voice, it was noted that the Russian 
Government had ordered 1500 Jukeboxes to be installed throughout their country. 

According to a committee report, issued after a recently concluded NAC board 
of directors meet, the concensus is that people participation amusements will 
have their growest growth. New developments will and are going to be devised 
for servicing these areas. The vending machine industry will grow correspond- 
ingly, increasing the need for more and better creative product. 


HERE AND THERE — Wurlitzer’s Bob Bear was among the first to applaud the 
appointment of Clint Shockey as General Manager of the Cincinnati and Columbus 
offices of Royal Distributing. “Shockey, well known to Ohio operators, should be 
an asset to the already strong representation Wurlitzer is enjoying in the midwest, 
Bob expounded. “Clint is one of the most knowledgeable and innovative men in 
the coin machine industry. He has the desire, experience, and interest to be help- 
ful to all of us. The Wurlitzer Company congratulates Joe Westerhaus, Jr. for his 
good judgement in placing Clint in this newly created position and wishes Mr. 
Shockey great success as he assumes his new responsibilities.’’ Wurlitzer expects 
improved sales as a result of Shockey’s assistance and the recent addition of Dick 
Gilger as Regional Sales Manager for the midwest. . . . Bob Matthews has joined 
Wainrite Stores’ County-Wide Vending Corp. as a vice president, following the 
merger of Matthews Vending Corp. into the Farmingdale, N.Y., company. Bob 
directed operations of Matthews Vending, a company founded by his father 25 
years ago and specializing in the music and games field. Prior to taking on the i 
management of this business, he was an executive with the Pergament Paint 
Company, managing stores of that corporation on Long Island. Bob is currently 
Treasurer of M.O.N.Y.

CHICAGO CHATTER 

To all of our friends in the industry, a very Happy Holiday Season! May the 
coming year be a prosperous one and a healthy one for all! . . . Many holiday 
parties are being hosted by the various factories and distributors in town. One 
of the earliest was the Seeburg affair at the Water Tower Hyatt House. The 
annual Williams Electronics Inc. Christmas bash for execs and department heads 
is scheduled for 12/23. Should be a fun affair . . . The only thing lacking in 
Chicago actually is snow, but then who can tell, just because it was 60 degrees 
last Wednesday doesn’t mean it can’t snow a week later! 

TALKED TO MOA’s FRED GRANGER about the upcoming MOA Regional Semi- 
nars, the first of which will be held at the University of Notre Dame in South 
Bend, on Friday and Saturday, February 4 and 5. “We are very encouraged by the 
number of advance registrations already recorded at this early date,” he said. 
“Some 35 confirmations were received even before the issuance of our latest 
mailing, directed to the various state associations across the country, which leads 
us to believe our initial session will attract a full house!” Persons attending the 
Notre Dame seminar may secure living accommodations on campus, at the Morris 
Inn, but reservations must be made no later than January 20. 

NOW THAT THE MIDWAY MFG. CO. plant in Schiller Park is in full production 
on the newly released “Haunted House”, volume orders are being filled and, 
from what we hear, the gun is certainly creating a great deal of excitement in the 
trade! In conversation with Bob Goad of Game Sales in Memphis last week, Larry 
Berke asked “Did you take a look at our new gun”, to which Bob replied “I don’t 
have to look at a Midway gun, each one is better than the last, if that’s possible, 
so I merely leave it in the crate and ship it right out!” How’s that for a testimonial! 

ENJOYED VISITING THE Williams Electronics Inc. factory last week and chat- 
ting some with Bill DeSelm. Quite a busy place out there! Noted the production 
lines on “Jungle Drums” at full speed! A big seller for Williams! There’ll be lots 
of new equipment coming out after the first of the year — wait and see! 

ATLAS MUSIC CO. will be hosting its first service school on the Rowe MM6 
model phonograph sometime after the first of the year. Invitations will be mailed 
just as soon as a definite date is confirmed. 

IN THUMBING THROUGH past issues of Cash Box for the last twelve months, 
our eyes focused on the Dec. '70-Jan. '71 period, when such familiar games as 
Williams "Cimarron” and “Dipsy Doodle”; ChiCoin's “Cowboy”; Bally’s “Target 
Zero” and Gottlieb’s “Snow Derby” were in release, and among the very newest 
items of the day. We’re in just about that same period right now and can look 
forward to a splendid array of new equipment coming forth from the factories 
in ’72! 

MILWAUKEE MENTIONS 

We extend holiday greetings to all of our friends in the industry. May the New 
Year bring with it an abundance of joy, love and prosperity for all! 

THE ANNUAL EMPLOYEES CHRISTMAS PARTY hosted by Hastings Dist. Inc. 
will be held on Monday, December 20. Should be a swingin’ affair! . . . Jack 
Hastings tells us he’s planning to hold a Rock-Ola service school, for Milwaukee 
operators, sometime after the first of the year. Session will be conducted by 
factory engineer Bill Findlay, at the Hastings headquarters on Bluemond Road . . . 
Four members of the distrib’s staff, by the way, were in Chicago on the 17th for 
the big school which Empire Dist. hosted. 

A REMINDER FOR AREA OPS that the Milwaukee Coin Machine Operators 
Association will have its first meeting of the new year on Tuesday, January 4, 
at The Chalet in West Ellis, with association president Arnold Jost presiding. 
MCMOA will, at that time, schedule a February meeting during which an election 
of officers will take place. 

CLINT AND MARIE PIERCE OF Pierce Music in Broadhead asked us to relay their 
good wishes to everyone for the holiday season! Marie is being kept pretty busy 
in the office these days while Clint is very much involved in the area’s current 
re-apportionment program. 

HOUSTON HAPPENINGS 

Comely Cathy Von Reydt, daughter of Hans Von Reydt (Central Sales), a 
junior at University of The Americas, Puebla, Mexico, home for the Holidays. 
She traveled longest distance for home. Cathy was official Rowe Inti, hostess 
at 1970 MOA convention . . . Chic Cindy Siegel, daughter of Don Siegel (LE 
Corporation), home from Emory University, Atlanta, Ga. for Holiday Vacation. 
She journeyed second most miles for home. Cindy maybe is hoping for good 
rather than typical Texas weather conditions during her visit for Atlanta winter 
weather reported to be tops . . . Bonny Pamela (Pam) Butler, daughter of L. C. 
Butler (Gulf Coast Dist.), home from St. Edwards College, Austin, Tex. for Holiday 
Season. Pam reportedly got a good break in form of more days off than students 
of many other colleges . . . Michael Reeder, son of J. R. Reeder (Record Service 
Co.), got home Dec. 21 for two weeks Holiday leave from U. S. West Point 
Military Academy. Michael will receive his Commission this coming May . . . 
Chris Butler, L. C. Butler’s younger son, Senior at Rice University, lost out on 
Holiday plane ride home as Rice is located here. Butler's other son, Harry, com- 
pleted his formal higher education early this year with post graduate studies in 
London, England . . . Petite Patricia Ann (Patti) Troy, daughter of Eddie Troy 
(Consolidated City Music), made news headlines in her first ’teen age year 
early in 1967. At age 13, while an eighth grade student, Patti was named High 
Point Junior Girl at Katy, Tex., annual 4H Fair and awarded a beautiful expensive 
trophy, with name, event and date inscribed thereon. Winning more laurels along 
the way, Patti now is a high school senior . . . R. M. Stone is among, if not 
leading, retailer of records, tape, music and musical instruments in Houston. He 
owns three stores in as many major shopping centers and negotiating for an- 
other one . . . Albert Rem, owner Rem’s Amustment Co. on Lucky St., made a 
rather expensive addition to operating inventory when he recently purchased a 
new Chevrolet pick up truck with everything on it . . . Despite fact that a hot 
and dry Summer was not conductive to edibility of wild game meat, number of 
"huntsmen widows” in local coinmatic circles this Season was about same as 
usual. Many of the hunters go mainly for an outing anyhow ... In closing wish 
to thank all of you for your favors and cooperation during past year and wish 
You and Yours A JOYOUS HOLIDAY SEASON AND A HEALTHY AND HAPPY 
NEW YEAR.

Wainrite Stores 
Buy 2 NY Routes 

FLUSHING, N.Y. — Wainrite Stores, 
Inc., (OTC) recently acquired two 
Long Island coin machine routes for 
an undisclosed amount of cash and 
common stock. The acquisition of 
Matthews Vending Corporation of 
Huntington, L.I., and Auto-Mated 
Service Corporation of Island Park 
are expected to add over $300,000 in 
revenues. 

Joseph G. Kaplan, president of the 
company, said that he expects the 
two operations to begin to contribute 
to corporate earnings during the last 
quarter of fiscal 1972, which began 
November 1st. 

Auto-Mated Service becomes part 
of County-Wide Vending Corp., a 
wholly owned subsidiary of Wain- 
rite, located in Farmingdale. Auto- 
Mated’s line of coin-operated ma- 
chines dispensing candy, soda, cof- 
fee, cigarettes complements that of

THE MAGICAL 
MUSICAL MINT 


100% MORE POWER TO THE PEOPLE 


Jumping locations have been asking for a phonograph 
that can blast out shattering volume without a trace of 
distortion. 

Rock-Ola's 160-selection 448 is the answer. We've added 
an exclusive feature called the Rock Power Amplification 
Switch. A flick of the Rock Power Switch sends 100% 
more power to both auxiliary and machine speakers. The 
result: pure, clear, distortion-free sound even at volume 
levels that only teenagers can tolerate. 

Other Rock-Ola changes for 1972? Just look at the 448. 
Jhe fresh, daring profile is the result of what we call 
mightline Programming. Notice that the program deck is 


slanted atthe optimum reading angle and that it's located 
up top, close to the line of sight. When someone wants 
to play a Rock-Ola we're not going to make them hunch 
over and squint to do it. 

Then, there's our all new 10-Key Numbers-In-Line Selec- 
tion System. It makes play easier, quicker, and more fun 
than ever before. 

And those are just a few of the changes in our 1972 
models. 

Rock-Ola will stop at nothing to get that extra quarter in 
your cash box. 

We'd even take the noise out of loud. In fact, we did.
